Your questions answered

General advice on what parents can do when their child is having a hard time at school:

  1. Talk to your child: First, it is important to have a conversation with your child to understand what exactly is going on. Ask them about their day, if there is anything bothering them, if they are having trouble with a particular subject, or if there is any specific issue with a teacher or classmate.
  2. Communicate with teachers: Once you have a better understanding of what's going on, reach out to your child's teacher(s) to discuss your concerns. They may be able to provide insights into your child's academic or social struggles and suggest ways to support them. They can also monitor your child's progress and let you know if there are any changes in their behaviour or academic performance.
  3. Offer emotional support: Going through a tough time at school can be emotionally draining for a child. Show empathy, listen to them, and offer encouragement and support. Help them build resilience and let them know that you believe in their ability to overcome challenges.
  4. Provide academic support: If your child is struggling with a particular subject, consider hiring a tutor or seeking help from the school's academic support services. Work with your child to develop study skills and time management strategies to help them better manage their workload.
  5. Work with the school: Finally, work with the school to develop a plan that supports your child's academic and emotional needs. This may involve setting up a meeting with the school's administration, the teacher(s), and other relevant staff to discuss the situation and explore possible solutions.

Remember that every child is different, and there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Be patient, and supportive, and keep an open mind to find the best way to support your child's growth and development.

This depends on a number of factors, including:

  1. Competition: The competition for places at grammar schools can be high, particularly in areas with a high number of applicants.
  2. 11 Plus Exam: The main entry requirement for most grammar schools is the 11 Plus exam, which tests children on a range of subjects including English, maths, and verbal and non-verbal reasoning. The difficulty of getting into a grammar school is largely dependent on how well a child does on this exam.
  3. Catchment Area: Some grammar schools are oversubscribed and may only accept pupils who live within a certain catchment area.
  4. Selection Criteria: Some grammar schools may have additional selection criteria, such as an interview or a written assessment, which can also make it more difficult to secure a place.

In conclusion, getting into a grammar school can be challenging, but with the right preparation and hard work, it is possible to secure a place.

Homeschoolers can take GCSEs (General Certificate of Secondary Education) exams by enrolling with an exam centre that offers GCSE exams to private candidates. Some exam centres allow homeschoolers to sit exams alongside students from schools, while others have specific dates for private candidates. Homeschoolers need to check with the exam centre for their requirements and the process for registering for exams. It's also important for homeschoolers to ensure that they have covered the necessary content for the GCSEs they wish to take.
