Chiseldon Schools

Every year parents of kids needing to go to a Chiseldon school in Wiltshire for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions in relation to their child's forthcoming schooling needs. Which school in Chiseldon should I place my son/daughter? It is a difficult choice to make as it can have a profound positive/negative end product on how your child develops all through childhood and for that reason a mammoth consequence on that offspring as he or she passes into adulthood and thereafter.

So how do you decide on a particular school from the Chiseldon locale?

  • Now and then it is easy if your child already has a sibling or siblings who will be at the establishment when your other child starts or older siblings earlier attended the school.
  • Your proximity to the school.
  • You or your child has a disability. You may possibly want to send off your offspring to a specialised school to cater for your offspring.
  • Faith Schools
  • Your offspring went to a linked nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entry exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others select a proportion of their pupils on scholarly ability)
  • Assessment or audition (if the establishment awards a specified 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 location or work location, if it's easy to drop your son/daughter off in the mornings for example.

On the surface of things - the characteristic of a school is mostly 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 against one another from the Chiseldon locale. Of course as every person knows stats 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 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 bureaucratic body which writes reports on schools in the Chiseldon area as well as the rest of the UK. 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 offspring is likely to attend a Chiseldon Primary or Chiseldon Secondary school for some years, so it is of the essence to know if a school is on the way up or down.

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