Schoolsguide.co.uk is a new website launched in May that allows parents to compare schools in your area. The TripAdvisor style site brings key school statistics together in one place from several official websites including the Department of Education and Ofsted making it quick and easy for parents to choose the best school for their child.
Using School Guide parents can:
• Find any school in England with its interactive search
• See current data in a clear visual format on each School Page
• Compare local schools at the touch of a button
• Get a School Guide Rating to see how a school ranks nationally
• Plot performance of a school in the School Guide League
• Share knowledge on local schools by adding comments via Facebook or DISQUS
Bright, modern and simple to navigate, School Guide uses colour coding to show types of schools (Primary, Secondary and Independent) and gives each school a unique rating. We know that there are some schools who will be concerned by the fact that parents can openly comment about the school in such a public forum. Why not get ahead of the game by creatiing a prescence for your school on social media sites like Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. We can give you advice on how to do it safely and how to you can react to negative comments that you may receive.
School Guide has been shortlisted for a Nominet Award in the Digital Innovation in Public Services category.
