School Reviewer offers a wealth of up to date information on 41,826 pre-schools, primary, secondary and further education establishments across the UK. The majority of listings include a minimum of three year’s worth of Ofsted Ratings and academic data which helps enforce quality and repute across the board.
‘Upon education of the people of this country, the fate of this country depends’. Benjamin Disraeli.
A good education is the right of every child. Therefore, it stands to reason that parents need to make informed choices about any school they choose for their child.
Detailing 41,826 schools throughout the UK, ‘School Reviewer’ will provide an invaluable, informed and objective overview of all educational establishments from nursery through to further education, including both state schools and those in the independent sector. Its aim will be to become the premier platform for school information in the UK, providing a comprehensive and continually updated database about schools, helping parents research the most suitable school for their child. By making this website interactive, it will allow members to share experiences, post comments and write reviews. Busy parents are able to download the specially developed School Reviewer IOS and Android Apps which are available to download from the relevant App stores. This gives mums and dads the freedom to explore the credentials of a chosen school from anywhere, at any time. Using the intelligent search algorithm, parents can search for schools by name, gender, establishment type, proximity to a chosen postcode and availability of reviews.
‘School Reviewer’ will create an online community that will provide first-hand information that goes beyond the school prospectus and the often, overwhelming school tour, providing personal experiences of schools by those who know the school. Members will have the opportunity to review and rate their experiences against given criteria. This will provide a valuable tool for those seeking to investigate new schools, whether for the next stage in their child’s education, a change of location, or simply looking for a better ‘fit’ for their child.
For schools, the website offers the opportunity to profile and promote their own establishments, whether by writing their own description, uploading photos or updating relevant information. Head teachers will also have the opportunity to respond to reviews, thus ensuring a fair platform.
The website has been developed by a parent for parents. Edwin Chan, founder, recognises the importance of making confident and informed choices for any child. “School Reviewer was born from the frustration felt when attempting to find first-hand information on potential schools for my children. Short of standing outside the school gates and canvassing opinions from parents at those schools during school run hours, I had no other source of parental reviews or opinions on those schools via the internet. School Reviewer is a free platform drawing on genuine feedback from everyday parents, providing an intelligent solution for parents wanting unbiased and honest reviews on schools throughout the United Kingdom.”
www.schoolreviewer.co.uk invites parents, teachers and head teachers to become part of this important and valuable initiative. This is intelligent support for parents wanting to see beyond the prospectus and the school visit, and who want to make informed choices.”
