Redditch Schools

Every year parents of kids requiring to go to a Redditch school in Worcestershire for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions on their child's impending education requirements. Which school in Redditch should I place my child? It's a testing judgment to make as it can have a profound positive/negative outcome on how your child develops through childhood and thus a colossal effect on that son/daughter as he or she passes into adulthood and thereafter.

So how do you opt for a specific school from the Redditch region?

  • Every now and then 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 earlier attended the school.
  • Your nearness to the school.
  • You or your child has a disability. You may perhaps require to send off your offspring to a specialised school to cater for your loved one.
  • Faith Schools
  • Your son/daughter went to a linked nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entry exam or selection test (grammar schools and other establishments select a fraction of their pupils on intellectual ability)
  • Assessment or interview (if the establishment awards a specified number of places 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 locality or work location, if it's straightforward to drop your son/daughter off in the mornings for instance.

On the surface of things - the excellence of a school is generally 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 against one another from the Redditch region. Of course as everybody knows stats 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 official body which writes reports on schools in the Redditch area as well as the rest of the United Kingdom. In a nutshell these reports will express how the school is doing, as well as showing that the school is improving or not. Bear in mind your child is expected to attend a Redditch Primary or Redditch Secondary school for several years, so it's important to identify if a school is on the way up or down.

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