Chirbury Schools

Every year parents of kids needing to go to a Chirbury school in Shropshire for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions regarding their child's forthcoming learning needs. Which school in Chirbury should I position my offspring? It is a testing choice to make as it can have a profound positive/negative consequence on how your child develops throughout childhood and thus a mammoth consequence on that son/daughter as he or she passes into adulthood and thereafter.

So how do you decide on a particular school from the Chirbury area?

  • Every now and then it is painless if your child already has a sibling or siblings who will be at the school when your other child starts or grown-up siblings earlier attended the school.
  • Your location to the school.
  • You or your child has a disability. You may possibly want to send your offspring to a specialised school to cater for your offspring.
  • Religious Schools
  • Your son/daughter went to a connected nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entrance exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others choose a percentage of their pupils on intellectual ability)
  • Assessment or audition (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 characteristic of the school and the closeness of the school to your location or work location, if it's straightforward to drop your son/daughter off in the mornings for instance.

On the surface of things - the class of a school is more often than not determined by results which are published each and every year in all of the regular newspapers. It's a simple matter of comparing one schools results against one another from the Chirbury region. Of course as everyone knows data are generally flawed to some degree or other. Kids results for a particular school may be twisted for lots of different reasons

  • Quality of intake to the school
  • Separate 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 Chirbury area as well as the rest of the UK. 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 son/daughter is to be expected to attend a Chirbury Primary or Chirbury Secondary school for a number of years, so it's significant to realize if a school is on the way up or down.

Using a schools bureaucrat reports and results is a fine early mode of weeding out the wheat from the chaff, after that it is very important you go and go to see the potential new school on their open day. This is a great means to find out more about the schools policies, its philosophy and it will also allow you to put questions straight to the head of the school.
