Prudhoe Schools

Each year parents of children requiring to go to a Prudhoe school in Northumberland 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 future learning requirements. Which school in Prudhoe should I locate my child? It's a tough judgment to make as it can have a profound positive/negative outcome on how your child develops all through childhood and consequently a mammoth effect on that son/daughter as he or she passes into maturity.

So how do you decide on a unique school from the Prudhoe region?

  • From time to time it is simple if your offspring already has a sibling or siblings who will be at the school 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 want to send your offspring to a specialised school to look after your loved one.
  • Religious Schools
  • Your offspring attended an associated nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entry exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others go for a fraction of their pupils on scholastic ability)
  • Assessment or interview (if the school awards a certain number of places on the basis of aptitude for certain subjects)

On the whole most parents decisions are based on the excellence of the school and the closeness 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 customarily determined by results which are published each and every year in all of the usual newspapers. It's a simple matter of comparing one schools results next to one another from the Prudhoe region. 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

  • Class 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 Prudhoe area as well as the rest of the UK. In a nutshell these reports will disclose how the school is doing, as well as showing that the school is improving or not. Bear in mind your son/daughter is liable to attend a Prudhoe Primary or Prudhoe Secondary school for quite a few years, so it is imperative to identify if a school is on the way up or down.

By a schools bureaucrat reports and results is a fine preliminary mode of weeding out the wheat from the chaff, after that it's very important you go and pay a quick visit to the potential new school on their open day. This is a fantastic system 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.
