Bungay Schools

Each year parents of children needing to go to a Bungay school in Suffolk for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions as regards their child's forthcoming education needs. Which school in Bungay should I locate my child? It is a tough choice to make as it can have a profound positive/negative effect on how your child develops during childhood and for that reason a huge effect on that child as he or she passes into maturity.

So how do you opt for a unique school from the Bungay region?

  • Now and then it is effortless if your child already has a sibling or siblings who will be at the school when your other child starts or grown-up siblings in the past attended the school.
  • Your proximity to the school.
  • You or your child has a disability. You may want to send off your child to a specialised school to cater for 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 audition (if the school awards a certain number of spaces on the basis of aptitude for selected subjects)

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

On the surface of things - the class of a school is as a rule determined by results which are published each and every year in all of the standard newspapers. It is a simple matter of comparing one schools results alongside one another from the Bungay 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

  • Class of intake to the school
  • Different 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 official body which writes reports on schools in the Bungay area as well as the rest of the United Kingdom. In a nutshell these reports will say how the school is doing, as well as showing that the school is improving or not. Remember your child is to be expected to attend a Bungay Primary or Bungay Secondary school for a number of years, so it's of the essence to recognize if a school is on the way up or down.

Using a schools official reports and results is a fine initial mode of weeding out the wheat from the chaff, after that it is most important you go and drop in on 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 directly to the head of the school.
