Wishaw Schools

Each year parents of kids needing to go to a Wishaw school in Warwickshire for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions about their child's impending learning requirements. Which school in Wishaw should I put my offspring? It is a difficult judgment to make as it can have a profound positive/negative consequence on how your child develops all through childhood and therefore a huge effect on that son/daughter as he or she passes into maturity.

So how do you decide upon a unique school from the Wishaw area?

  • Sometimes it is painless if your son/daughter already has a sibling or siblings who will be at the establishment when your other child starts or elder siblings earlier attended the school.
  • Your closeness to the school.
  • You or your child has a disability. You might require to send off your child to a specialised school to look after your offspring.
  • Religious Schools
  • Your son/daughter went to a linked nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entry exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others choose a proportion of their pupils on educational ability)
  • Assessment or audition (if the establishment awards a certain number of spaces on the basis of aptitude for selected subjects)

On the whole most parents decisions are based on the quality of the school and the nearness of the school to your home or work location, if it is easy to drop your offspring off in the mornings for instance.

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 regular newspapers. It's a simple matter of comparing one schools results next to one another from the Wishaw region. Of course as everyone knows stats 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 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 results.

Ofsted is an formal body which writes reports on schools in the Wishaw area as well as the rest of the United Kingdom. In a nutshell these reports will reveal how the school is doing, as well as showing that the school is improving or not. Consider your child is liable to attend a Wishaw Primary or Wishaw Secondary school for some years, so it is important to recognize if a school is improving or not.

Using a schools sanctioned reports and results is a nice initial mode of weeding out the wheat from the chaff, after that it is very important you go and pay a quick visit to the potential new school on their open day. This is a fantastic way to find out more about the schools policies, its ethos and it will also allow you to put questions directly to the head of the school.
