Weston-on-the-Green Schools

Every year parents of children needing to go to a Weston-on-the-Green school in Oxfordshire for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions as regards their child's impending education requirements. Which school in Weston-on-the-Green should I put my offspring? It's a testing judgment to make as it can have a profound positive/negative end product on how your child develops throughout childhood and thus a mammoth effect on that son/daughter as he or she passes into adulthood and thereafter.

So how do you decide on a particular school from the Weston-on-the-Green locale?

  • Every so often it is simple if your offspring already has a sibling or siblings who will be at the establishment when your other child starts or grown-up siblings before attended the school.
  • Your location to the school.
  • You or your child has a special education needs. You may well need to send off your offspring to a specialised school to look after your child.
  • Religious Schools
  • Your son/daughter went to a linked nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entrance exam or selection test (grammar schools and other establishments go for a fraction of their pupils on academic ability)
  • Assessment or interview (if the school 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 proximity of the school to your location or work location, if it is easy to drop your son/daughter off in the mornings for example.

On the surface of things - the worth of a school is ordinarily determined by results which are available each and every year in all of the standard newspapers. It is a simple matter of comparing one schools results next to one another from the Weston-on-the-Green area. Of course as everyone 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
  • Several 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 Weston-on-the-Green area as well as the rest of the UK. In a nutshell these reports will declare how the school is doing, as well as showing that the school is improving or not. Take into account your son/daughter is to be expected to attend a Weston-on-the-Green Primary or Weston-on-the-Green Secondary school for several years, so it's of the essence to know if a school is on the way up or down.

Using a schools sanctioned reports and results is a nice early mode of weeding out the wheat from the chaff, after that it is fundamental you go and go to see 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 straight to the head of the school.
