Finding out more about a primary or secondary school

July 28, 2020

You can find out more by:

  • visiting the school – most schools have open days
  • reading the school’s most recent Ofsted reports
  • checking school performance tables
  • talking to other parents about what they think of the school

What schools must publish on their website

Schools’ websites must include:

  • admission arrangements, including how to apply
  • details of the curriculum
  • behaviour policy
  • links to Ofsted reports
  • links to performance data
  • the school’s latest key stage 2 and 4 attainment and progress measures
  • their policies for children with special educational needs and disabilities
  • the amount of money they get for taking underprivileged children (the ‘pupil premium’), what they do with it and the effect it’s had

You can also get advice about choosing state-funded schools from your local council.
