Ware Schools

Each year parents of children requiring to go to a Ware school in Hertfordshire for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions on their child's impending learning needs. Which school in Ware should I situate my child? It's a difficult decision to make as it can have a profound positive/negative outcome on how your child develops during childhood and consequently a huge consequence on that child as he or she passes into maturity.

So how do you decide on a specific school from the Ware area?

  • Now and then it is effortless if your child already has a sibling or siblings who will be at the school when your other child starts or older siblings in the past attended the school.
  • Your location to the school.
  • You or your child has a disability. You may well need to send your child to a specialised school to look after your offspring.
  • Religious Schools
  • Your offspring went to a connected nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entry exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others decide on a fraction of their pupils on academic ability)
  • Assessment or interview (if the establishment awards a specified 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 closeness of the school to your home or work location, if it's easy to drop your son/daughter off in the mornings for example.

On the surface of things - the quality of a school is habitually determined by results which are available each and every year in all of the regular newspapers. It's a simple matter of comparing one schools results next to one another from the Ware vicinity. Of course as everybody knows data 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
  • Several Examination 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 Ware 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. Take into account your offspring is liable to attend a Ware Primary or Ware Secondary school for a number of years, so it is important to know if a school is on the way up or down.

Via a schools bureaucrat reports and results is a good opening way of weeding out the wheat from the chaff, after that it's fundamental you go and pay a visit to the potential new school on their open day. This is a good technique to find out more about the schools policies, its ethos and it will also permit you to put questions directly to the head of the school.
