Saundersfoot Schools

Each year parents of kids requiring to go to a Saundersfoot school in Dyfed for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions as regards their child's upcoming learning needs. Which school in Saundersfoot 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 all through childhood and for that reason a gigantic effect on that son/daughter as he or she passes into later life.

So how do you select a particular school from the Saundersfoot region?

  • At times it is straightforward 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 closeness to the school.
  • You or your child has a disability. You may perhaps need to send off your child to a specialised school to cater for your offspring.
  • Religious Schools
  • Your son/daughter went to a linked nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entry exam or selection test (grammar schools and other establishments choose a proportion of their pupils on intellectual ability)
  • Assessment or interview (if the establishment awards a certain number of spaces 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 home or work location, if it is easy to drop your child off in the mornings for instance.

On the surface of things - the excellence 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 next to one another from the Saundersfoot locale. Of course as everybody 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 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 authoritative body which writes reports on schools in the Saundersfoot area as well as the rest of the United Kingdom. In a nutshell these reports will reveal how the school is doing, as well as showing that the school is improving or not. Take into account your son/daughter is to be expected to attend a Saundersfoot Primary or Saundersfoot Secondary school for some years, so it is important to know if a school is on the way up or down.

Using a schools sanctioned reports and results is a good early way of weeding out the wheat from the chaff, after that it's imperative you go and go to the potential new school on their open day. This is a great method 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.
