Hayle Schools

Each year parents of children requiring to go to a Hayle school in Cornwall for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions regarding their child's impending learning requirements. Which school in Hayle should I place my son/daughter? It's a tough judgment to make as it can have a profound positive/negative consequence on how your child develops through childhood and consequently a colossal effect on that child as he or she passes into maturity.

So how do you select a particular school from the Hayle area?

  • From time to time it is painless if your son/daughter already has a sibling or siblings who will be at the school when your other child starts or elder siblings before attended the school.
  • Your nearness to the school.
  • You or your child has a disability. You may need to send off your offspring to a specialised school to look after your loved one.
  • Religious Schools
  • Your child went to a connected nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entry exam or selection test (grammar schools and other establishments decide on a proportion of their pupils on scholastic ability)
  • Assessment or interview (if the school awards a certain number of places on the basis of aptitude for selected subjects)

On the whole most parents decisions are based on the quality of the school and the propinquity of the school to your location or work location, if it is easy to drop your offspring off in the mornings for example.

On the surface of things - the value of a school is mostly determined by results which are published each and every year in all of the usual newspapers. It is a simple matter of comparing one schools results against one another from the Hayle locale. Of course as everybody 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

  • Condition of intake to the school
  • Different Exam 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 bureaucratic body which writes reports on schools in the Hayle area as well as the rest of the UK. In a nutshell these reports will declare how the school is doing, as well as showing that the school is improving or not. Remember your son/daughter is liable to attend a Hayle Primary or Hayle Secondary school for a number of years, so it is of the essence to identify if a school is on the way up or down.

Via a schools sanctioned reports and results is a decent opening way of weeding out the wheat from the chaff, after that it's fundamental you go and go to see the potential new school on their open day. This is a fantastic tactic to find out more about the schools policies, its philosophy and it will also allow you to put questions directly to the head of the school.
