Boscastle Schools

Every year parents of kids requiring to go to a Boscastle school in Cornwall for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions in relation to their child's future schooling requirements. Which school in Boscastle should I locate my child? It is a testing judgment to make as it can have a profound positive/negative consequence on how your child develops for the duration of childhood and thus a huge effect on that offspring as he or she passes into adulthood and thereafter.

So how do you choose a particular school from the Boscastle locale?

  • Now and then it is painless if your child already has a sibling or siblings who will be at the establishment when your other child starts or grown-up siblings in the past attended the school.
  • Your closeness to the school.
  • You or your child has a special education needs. You may possibly need to send your offspring to a specialised school to cater for your loved one.
  • Religious Schools
  • Your child went to a linked nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entrance exam or selection test (grammar schools and other establishments choose a proportion of their pupils on academic ability)
  • Assessment or audition (if the school awards a certain number of spaces on the basis of aptitude for selected subjects)

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

On the surface of things - the class of a school is habitually determined by results which are published each and every year in all of the standard newspapers. It's a simple matter of comparing one schools results against one another from the Boscastle locale. Of course as everyone knows stats are generally flawed to some degree or other. Children's results for a particular school may be twisted for lots of different reasons

  • Class of intake to the school
  • Separate 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 Boscastle area as well as the rest of the UK. In a nutshell these reports will say how the school is doing, as well as showing that the school is improving or not. Bear in mind your son/daughter is expected to attend a Boscastle Primary or Boscastle Secondary school for some years, so it is important to know if a school is improving or not.

Via a schools official reports and results is a decent opening way of weeding out the wheat from the chaff, after that it is most important you go and pay a visit to the potential new school on their open day. This is a good system to find out more about the schools policies, its ethos and it will also permit you to put questions directly to the head of the school.
