Stone Schools

Every year parents of children requiring to go to a Stone school in Staffordshire for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions on their child's impending education needs. Which school in Stone should I put my child? It's a hard judgment to make as it can have a profound positive/negative effect on how your child develops for the duration of childhood and as a result a massive consequence on that offspring as he or she passes into adulthood and thereafter.

So how do you opt for a unique school from the Stone locale?

  • From time to time it is painless if your son/daughter already has a sibling or siblings who will be at the school when your other child starts or grown-up siblings before attended the school.
  • Your proximity to the school.
  • You or your child has a disability. You might want to send off your offspring to a specialised school to cater for your child.
  • Faith Schools
  • Your offspring went to a connected nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entrance exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others choose a proportion 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 propinquity of the school to your locality or work location, if it is easy to drop your offspring off in the mornings for example.

On the surface of things - the excellence of a school is as a rule determined by results which are published each and every year in all of the usual newspapers. It is a simple matter of comparing one schools results next to one another from the Stone locale. Of course as everybody knows statistics are generally flawed to some degree or other. Kids 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 authoritative body which writes reports on schools in the Stone 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. Consider your son/daughter is likely to attend a Stone Primary or Stone Secondary school for quite a few years, so it's significant to know if a school is improving or not.

Using a schools formal reports and results is a useful early mode of weeding out the wheat from the chaff, after that it's most important you go and call on the potential new school on their open day. This is a great system 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.
