Redbridge Schools

Every year parents of children needing to go to a Redbridge school in Greater London for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions in relation to their child's forthcoming learning requirements. Which school in Redbridge should I position 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 therefore a colossal consequence on that child as he or she passes into maturity.

So how do you select a specific school from the Redbridge vicinity?

  • Every so often 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 older siblings before attended the school.
  • Your location to the school.
  • You or your child has a disability. You might need to send off your child to a specialised school to look after your loved one.
  • Religious Schools
  • Your offspring went to a connected nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entry exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others choose a proportion of their pupils on scholastic ability)
  • Assessment or audition (if the school awards a specified 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 propinquity 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 habitually 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 next to one another from the Redbridge region. Of course as every person knows data are generally flawed to some degree or other. Kids results for a particular school may be twisted for lots of different reasons

  • Class 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 bureaucratic body which writes reports on schools in the Redbridge 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. Bear in mind your offspring is liable to attend a Redbridge Primary or Redbridge Secondary school for several years, so it is imperative to identify if a school is improving or not.

Using a schools bureaucrat reports and results is a decent early mode of weeding out the wheat from the chaff, after that it is very important you go and visit the potential new school on their open day. This is a good means 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.
