The kids are "almost" all back to school and the summer holidays are officially over. I have to admit that I fall into the category of mums that gets really sad when the start of term is looming, I adore having the girls at home over the summer and whilst there is no doubt it puts more pressure on my purse strings, I love not having the madness of the school run and the daily regime.
That said, this year has brought new adventures with new schools for both girls. My eldest had her SATS at the end of Year 6 and (without entering the proud parent realms too much) did exceptionally well so starts her senior school at a high level, which I obviously want her the maintain. I am forever telling her that knowledge is power and learning will give her options in the future. From a parents perspective, I am always trying to make the best decisions for my girls, which is why I was delighted to find www.schoolreviewer.co.uk which is the one site that empowers parents with the knowledge that they are doing all they can to ensure their child’s educational journey is as happy, fulfilling and as rewarding as they can possibly make it.
I am a big stat geek so I love that School Reviewer is the only site in the UK that not only gives parents the invaluable stats and knowledge about every UK school at every level. There are presently 41,826 establishments on record within the School Reviewer database and they have detailed profiles, academic data and OFSTED reports for most of these. All that information in one place! But that is not all, it also ....
- Identifies which homes fall into which catchment areas.
- Allows parents to talk with other parents on school forums, both individually as single schools and nationally.
- Is the only site with walk through question by question downloadable videos for GCSE math’s, SATS and 11+ papers.
- Is recruiting tutors for free to create the biggest and most trusted tutor site for parents in the UK.
- Is the only one to show how a 100% A+ grade can be scored on all papers. (Wow!!)
Getting the right education is important for our children but as parents new schools, new uniform and new areas can be just as daunting, so having a forum is a great place to buy and sell school uniform and find like minded parents in your area. The School Reviewer "Parents Forum" opens up an avenue for parents to interact and discuss a whole range of topics and this isn't restricted to your local area, you can chat to parents regionally or nationally, which is a really interesting feature.
Education is a journey for both the children and us as parents (this is without mentioning the fear that descends when we are asked to help with some of the homework) so having a resource to help you and your child is a winner in my book. But don't take my word for it, go and take a look for yourself .....
