Tutbury Schools

Each year parents of kids needing to go to a Tutbury school in Staffordshire for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions in relation to their child's forthcoming learning needs. Which school in Tutbury should I position my offspring? It is a testing decision to make as it can have a profound positive/negative consequence on how your child develops throughout childhood and therefore a massive consequence on that offspring as he or she passes into later life.

So how do you opt for a particular school from the Tutbury area?

  • At times it is straightforward if your child already has a sibling or siblings who will be at the school when your other child starts or elder siblings in the past 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 cater for your loved one.
  • Religious Schools
  • Your child attended an associated nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entry exam or selection test (grammar schools and other establishments select 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 selected subjects)

On the whole most parents decisions are based on the excellence of the school and the proximity of the school to your locality or work location, if it is straightforward to drop your son/daughter off in the mornings for example.

On the surface of things - the worth of a school is as a rule 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 Tutbury area. 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 results.

Ofsted is an formal body which writes reports on schools in the Tutbury 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. Consider your son/daughter is expected to attend a Tutbury Primary or Tutbury Secondary school for quite a few years, so it is significant to know if a school is improving or not.

Using a schools formal reports and results is a nice preliminary way of weeding out the wheat from the chaff, after that it's most important you go and pay a visit to the potential new school on their open day. This is a good system to find out more about the schools policies, its philosophy and it will also permit you to put questions directly to the head of the school.
