When thinking about schools for your child it’s helpful to:

  • talk to your child about schools
  • visit schools - details of any arrangements will be on the school's websites
  • read school prospectuses
  • check how many places are available at each school 
  • read school Ofsted reports
  • check school league tables and exam results
  • think about how your child will travel to and from school
  • ask the school how they support children with special educational needs or disabilities
  • check when you need to apply for a school place
  • find out how primary and secondary school places are decided and which children get priority
  • find out how school places were offered last year
