Perranporth Schools

Each year parents of children needing to go to a Perranporth 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 schooling needs. Which school in Perranporth should I position my child? It is a difficult judgment to make as it can have a profound positive/negative consequence on how your child develops through childhood and consequently a mammoth consequence on that offspring as he or she passes into adulthood and thereafter.

So how do you decide upon a particular school from the Perranporth locale?

  • Every now and then it is simple if your son/daughter already has a sibling or siblings who will be at the establishment when your other child starts or grown-up siblings previously attended the school.
  • Your proximity to the school.
  • You or your child has a special education needs. You might want to send your offspring to a specialised school to cater for your child.
  • Faith Schools
  • Your child attended a connected nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entrance exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others decide on a fraction of their pupils on educational ability)
  • Assessment or audition (if the school awards a precise 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 nearness of the school to your locality or work location, if it's easy to drop your offspring off in the mornings for example.

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

  • Quality of intake to the school
  • Separate 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 official body which writes reports on schools in the Perranporth area as well as the rest of the United Kingdom. In a nutshell these reports will disclose how the school is doing, as well as showing that the school is improving or not. Bear in mind your offspring is to be expected to attend a Perranporth Primary or Perranporth Secondary school for several years, so it is significant to identify if a school is on the way up or down.

Using a schools official reports and results is a nice early mode of weeding out the wheat from the chaff, after that it's fundamental you go and pay a quick visit to the potential new school on their open day. This is a good system 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.
