Felsted Schools

Each year parents of children requiring to go to a Felsted school in Essex for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions on the subject of their child's forthcoming education requirements. Which school in Felsted should I situate my son/daughter? It's a testing choice to make as it can have a profound positive/negative consequence on how your child develops throughout childhood and therefore a massive consequence on that son/daughter as he or she passes into maturity.

So how do you opt for a particular school from the Felsted region?

  • Every now and then it is simple if your offspring already has a sibling or siblings who will be at the school when your other child starts or grown-up siblings earlier attended the school.
  • Your closeness to the school.
  • You or your child has a disability. You may well need to send your offspring to a specialised school to cater for your child.
  • Religious Schools
  • Your offspring attended a connected nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entrance exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others decide on a percentage of their pupils on academic ability)
  • Assessment or interview (if the school awards a precise number of places on the basis of aptitude for selected subjects)

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

On the surface of things - the characteristic of a school is more often than not determined by results which are published each and every year in all of the standard newspapers. It is a simple matter of comparing one schools results alongside one another from the Felsted vicinity. 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

  • 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 results.

Ofsted is an legitimate body which writes reports on schools in the Felsted 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. Consider your son/daughter is expected to attend a Felsted Primary or Felsted Secondary school for some years, so it's important to identify if a school is improving or not.

Via a schools official reports and results is a useful early mode of weeding out the wheat from the chaff, after that it's most important you go and go to the potential new school on their open day. This is a fantastic technique to find out more about the schools policies, its ethos and it will also allow you to put questions directly to the head of the school.
