What is your advice about? How to spot a poor school.

1: High turnover of staff in shortage subjects. It probably means they won’t work there or if they do they leave quickly.

2: You are blamed for using the discipline policy. The 2 behaviour policy schools are invariably bad; the written policy and the unwritten one.

3: Low ebacc score. Possibly controversial, but although not suitable for many anything below 50% is poor.

4: Publicity doesn’t match the results. If the schools tells/convinces everyone they’re great but the results aren’t… Avoid like the plague.

5: Parents go out of their way to not send pupils there. So low property prices in catchment area.
