As Dahliarose has said at Template talk:Schools in Greenwich, "This template needs a lot of work. Primary schools are not normally considered notable enough to have articles. Only primary schools with blue links should be included in such templates. The red linked secondary schools would also be best removed and only added once appropriate articles have been created." I agree with that. Redlinks in navigation templates seem to serve no useful purpose and also create problems, as they sometimes encourage the creation of articles for schools which aren't notable. I suggest that it would be better to include the blue links only and add new articles for notable schools as they are created, which is the norm in almost all such templates. Does anyone object to that approach? Xn4 03:58, 30 October 2007 (UTC)
