Bedale Schools

Each year parents of children requiring to go to a Bedale school in North Yorkshire for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions as regards their child's future schooling requirements. Which school in Bedale should I put my offspring? It is a hard decision to make as it can have a profound positive/negative consequence on how your child develops throughout childhood and as a result a mammoth effect on that child as he or she passes into maturity.

So how do you decide upon a particular school from the Bedale locale?

  • Every 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 earlier attended the school.
  • Your proximity 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 loved one.
  • Religious Schools
  • Your child attended a connected nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entry exam or selection test (grammar schools and other establishments go for a percentage of their pupils on scholastic ability)
  • Assessment or interview (if the establishment awards a specified number of places on the basis of aptitude for selected 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 child off in the mornings for instance.

On the surface of things - the value of a school is customarily determined by results which are available each and every year in all of the regular newspapers. It is a simple matter of comparing one schools results next to one another from the Bedale vicinity. Of course as every person 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

  • 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 performance.

Ofsted is an formal body which writes reports on schools in the Bedale area as well as the rest of the United Kingdom. In a nutshell these reports will declare how the school is doing, as well as showing that the school is improving or not. Remember your offspring is likely to attend a Bedale Primary or Bedale Secondary school for several years, so it is imperative to realize if a school is improving or not.

Using a schools official reports and results is a decent opening 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 good system to find out more about the schools policies, its ethos and it will also permit you to put questions straight to the head of the school.
