Framlingham Schools

Every year parents of children requiring to go to a Framlingham school in Suffolk for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions on their child's forthcoming education needs. Which school in Framlingham should I put my offspring? It is a hard decision to make as it can have a profound positive/negative effect on how your child develops all through childhood and therefore a gigantic consequence on that offspring as he or she passes into maturity.

So how do you decide on a particular school from the Framlingham vicinity?

  • Every so often 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 closeness to the school.
  • You or your child has a disability. You might want to send your child to a specialised school to look after your offspring.
  • Faith Schools
  • Your offspring attended a linked nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entrance exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others go for a percentage of their pupils on intellectual ability)
  • Assessment or interview (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's straightforward to drop your offspring off in the mornings for example.

On the surface of things - the characteristic of a school is as a rule 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 against one another from the Framlingham area. Of course as every person knows statistics 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
  • 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 results.

Ofsted is an formal body which writes reports on schools in the Framlingham 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. Remember your offspring is expected to attend a Framlingham Primary or Framlingham Secondary school for quite a few years, so it's of the essence to recognize if a school is on the way up or down.

Using a schools sanctioned reports and results is a decent opening way 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 fantastic means to find out more about the schools policies, its culture and it will also allow you to put questions directly to the head of the school.
