Partridge Green Schools

Every year parents of children needing to go to a Partridge Green school in West Sussex for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions on their child's future learning needs. Which school in Partridge Green should I situate my child? It is a hard judgment to make as it can have a profound positive/negative consequence on how your child develops throughout childhood and as a result a mammoth effect on that offspring as he or she passes into adulthood and thereafter.

So how do you opt for a specific school from the Partridge Green area?

  • Occasionally it is simple if your offspring already has a sibling or siblings who will be at the school when your other child starts or elder siblings earlier attended the school.
  • Your proximity to the school.
  • You or your child has a disability. You may perhaps need to send off your child to a specialised school to look after your child.
  • Religious Schools
  • Your offspring attended a connected nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entrance exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others select a quantity of their pupils on scholarly ability)
  • Assessment or audition (if the school awards a certain number of spaces on the basis of aptitude for certain subjects)

On the whole most parents decisions are based on the quality of the school and the proximity of the school to your locality or work location, if it's easy to drop your son/daughter off in the mornings for instance.

On the surface of things - the quality of a school is ordinarily determined by results which are available each and every year in all of the regular newspapers. It is a simple matter of comparing one schools results alongside one another from the Partridge Green region. Of course as everybody 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 Partridge Green area as well as the rest of the United Kingdom. In a nutshell these reports will disclose how the school is doing, as well as showing that the school is improving or not. Bear in mind your offspring is to be expected to attend a Partridge Green Primary or Partridge Green Secondary school for a number of years, so it's significant to know if a school is on the way up or down.

Using a schools sanctioned reports and results is a decent early mode of weeding out the wheat from the chaff, after that it is fundamental you go and drop in 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 directly to the head of the school.
