Battle Schools

Each year parents of kids requiring to go to a Battle school in East Sussex for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions regarding their child's forthcoming education needs. Which school in Battle should I situate my son/daughter? It's a tough decision to make as it can have a profound positive/negative end product on how your child develops all through childhood and thus a colossal consequence on that child as he or she passes into adulthood and thereafter.

So how do you decide upon a unique school from the Battle region?

  • Now and then it is painless if your son/daughter already has a sibling or siblings who will be at the establishment when your other child starts or elder siblings in the past attended the school.
  • Your location to the school.
  • You or your child has a special education needs. You might need to send your child to a specialised school to cater for your child.
  • Religious Schools
  • Your child attended a connected nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entry exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others select a fraction of their pupils on scholarly ability)
  • Assessment or audition (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 characteristic of the school and the proximity of the school to your locality or work location, if it is easy to drop your offspring off in the mornings for example.

On the surface of things - the quality of a school is usually 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 Battle region. 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

  • 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 results.

Ofsted is an official body which writes reports on schools in the Battle area as well as the rest of the United Kingdom. In a nutshell these reports will voice how the school is doing, as well as showing that the school is improving or not. Remember your child is expected to attend a Battle Primary or Battle Secondary school for a number of years, so it's of the essence to know if a school is on the way up or down.

Using a schools bureaucrat reports and results is a fine initial mode of weeding out the wheat from the chaff, after that it's very important you go and go to the potential new school on their open day. This is a great technique to find out more about the schools policies, its ethos and it will also allow you to put questions straight to the head of the school.
