Broadway Schools

Each year parents of children needing to go to a Broadway school in Worcestershire for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions about their child's forthcoming education requirements. Which school in Broadway should I situate my child? It is a hard decision to make as it can have a profound positive/negative upshot on how your child develops during childhood and therefore a mammoth effect on that offspring as he or she passes into maturity.

So how do you choose a unique school from the Broadway region?

  • Every now and then it is easy if your offspring already has a sibling or siblings who will be at the school when your other child starts or elder siblings before attended the school.
  • Your location to the school.
  • You or your child has a special education needs. You may perhaps want to send off your child to a specialised school to cater for your child.
  • 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 intellectual 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 characteristic of the school and the propinquity of the school to your home or work location, if it's straightforward to drop your child off in the mornings for instance.

On the surface of things - the value of a school is customarily determined by results which are published each and every year in all of the usual newspapers. It is a simple matter of comparing one schools results against one another from the Broadway region. Of course as everyone knows data are generally flawed to some degree or other. Kids results for a particular school may be twisted for lots of different reasons

  • Quality 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 performance.

Ofsted is an bureaucratic body which writes reports on schools in the Broadway 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 son/daughter is likely to attend a Broadway Primary or Broadway Secondary school for quite a few years, so it is imperative to know if a school is on the way up or down.

Using a schools official reports and results is a nice early way 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 culture and it will also allow you to put questions directly to the head of the school.
