Selsey Schools

Each year parents of children needing to go to a Selsey school in West Sussex for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions about their child's future schooling requirements. Which school in Selsey should I place my child? It is a difficult choice to make as it can have a profound positive/negative effect on how your child develops during childhood and for that reason a colossal consequence on that son/daughter as he or she passes into adulthood and thereafter.

So how do you decide on a unique school from the Selsey area?

  • Sometimes it is simple if your son/daughter already has a sibling or siblings who will be at the establishment when your other child starts or older siblings before attended the school.
  • Your location to the school.
  • You or your child has a disability. You might want to send off your offspring to a specialised school to look after your loved one.
  • Religious Schools
  • Your son/daughter went to a linked nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entrance exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others select a proportion of their pupils on academic ability)
  • Assessment or interview (if the establishment awards a precise number of spaces on the basis of aptitude for selected subjects)

On the whole most parents decisions are based on the excellence of the school and the closeness of the school to your locality or work location, if it's easy to drop your child off in the mornings for instance.

On the surface of things - the class of a school is frequently 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 alongside one another from the Selsey locale. Of course as every person knows statistics 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
  • 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 performance.

Ofsted is an formal body which writes reports on schools in the Selsey area as well as the rest of the UK. In a nutshell these reports will reveal how the school is doing, as well as showing that the school is improving or not. Remember your child is expected to attend a Selsey Primary or Selsey Secondary school for quite a few years, so it is significant to know if a school is on the way up or down.

Via a schools bureaucrat reports and results is a good preliminary mode of weeding out the wheat from the chaff, after that it's most important you go and pay a quick visit to the potential new school on their open day. This is a great technique to find out more about the schools policies, its ethos and it will also permit you to put questions directly to the head of the school.
