Education consultant and former schools inspector Bill Laar says making sure that the pupils look happy when you visit is an important test.
Other essentials, says Laar, include a reasonably high position in the national tests league tables; a "rich" curriculum; a low turnover of teachers; a well-looked-after playground (with plenty of space for games, important for boys); enough computers to get to grips with technology and, crucially, an inspirational head teacher keen to work with parents.

Talking Point

In the Times Educational Supplement on 1st July this year, Bill Laar, an educational consultant, wrote of children who live in deprived areas of Britain 'time and again children's writing lacks narrative substance, simply because those who do not have enriching, diverse experiences will struggle to construct coherent, substantial plots and to maintain a meaningful story-line.' He goes on to suggest that 'alongside a curriculum as rich as possible, and some focused work on children's speaking and listening, (there is a need to) establish a policy for the provision of narrative.'As Bill Laar suggests without their own experiences of routines and events and the opportunity to talk about them many school aged children don't develop the vocabulary, grammar and narrative skills necessary to even report what they did at the weekend.Furthermore they may also be able to suggest a model of how Bill Laar's suggestion of including children's speaking, listening and narrative in the primary classroom could be achieved.
