Hale Schools

Each year parents of children requiring to go to a Hale school in Cheshire for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions about their child's future education needs. Which school in Hale should I situate my son/daughter? It is a tough decision to make as it can have a profound positive/negative effect on how your child develops for the duration of childhood and for that reason a massive effect on that offspring as he or she passes into later life.

So how do you opt for a specific school from the Hale locale?

  • At times it is easy if your offspring already has a sibling or siblings who will be at the school when your other child starts or elder siblings earlier attended the school.
  • Your nearness to the school.
  • You or your child has a disability. You may perhaps need to send off your offspring to a specialised school to look after your child.
  • Faith Schools
  • Your offspring attended a linked nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entrance exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others choose a quantity of their pupils on educational ability)
  • Assessment or audition (if the establishment awards a specified number of places on the basis of aptitude for certain subjects)

On the whole most parents decisions are based on the quality of the school and the nearness of the school to your location or work location, if it is easy to drop your son/daughter off in the mornings for instance.

On the surface of things - the value of a school is typically determined by results which are published each and every year in all of the regular newspapers. It's a simple matter of comparing one schools results alongside one another from the Hale region. Of course as everyone knows stats are generally flawed to some degree or other. Kids results for a particular school may be twisted for lots of different reasons

  • Quality of intake to the school
  • Different Examination boards
  • Expulsions to school
  • Quality of Teaching
  • Type of School
  • Social impact of surrounding area
  • Over/Under subscribed

So there are in fact lots of variables that can increase/decrease a schools performance.

Ofsted is an authoritative body which writes reports on schools in the Hale area as well as the rest of the UK. In a nutshell these reports will express how the school is doing, as well as showing that the school is improving or not. Consider your offspring is expected to attend a Hale Primary or Hale Secondary school for several years, so it is significant to realize if a school is on the way up or down.

By a schools formal reports and results is a fine early mode of weeding out the wheat from the chaff, after that it's imperative you go and call on the potential new school on their open day. This is a great tactic to find out more about the schools policies, its culture and it will also allow you to put questions directly to the head of the school.
