Thanks

St. Georges or Mount Primary as above are meant to be the best.

I went to Mount Primary!

All primary schools around the Wirral are good. Ofsted don't give a true picture. Neither do the league tables. Go on how happy the children are and consider what you want in terms of extra-curricular the older your children get as some schools offer a wider variety. I'd be hesitant to say some schools are 'better' than others. Some just offer different things.

Hmmm would like to agree with you but unfortunately i personally do think there are 'good' and 'bad' schools. Extra curricular activities aren't top priority for me personally because (I'm lucky enough to be able to) but i do and would continue paying for him to participate in private ones such as football, drama, swimming, playing an instrument etc. For me personally thats not what school is about. Your right in saying ofsted don't tell you about the school as such and you need to choose according to what you expect/want for your child. I personally want him to be happy and happy to learn because the make in fun to do so in hopefully a bully free environment and supportive teachers.

I went to Poulton Primary.

It wasn't terrible, but I would say it was great either. My mum used to teach at St Albans, and I would be in there quite often to help with days out or other bits of simple stuff - in fact, I'd been going in to help for longer than some of the staff had been there.

They've had a lot of money spent on the school, so it's really up to date inside.

Bit far to travel from West Kirby though?

My mum has taught in quite a lot of the schools around the Wirral (Greenleas and Liscard included) as she was a supply teacher for a while.

{I see this forum allows around 2 minutes before editing is blocked :D}

I think she may have even been in Mount and St Georges a few times.

The Ofsted reports are highly 'dodgy'. Basically, unless they add to or change the report each time they visit, it looks as if they're not actively pushing the schools or monitoring them. I'm sure my mum could write you a heavy book on the topic but, suffice it to say, they are not the sole method you should use to judge the school.

I seem to remember Poulton getting a fairly high mark at one point, when I wouldn't say it really deserved one while I was there.

I'll ask her which were her favourite if I see her and let you know.
