All parents and carers come up against the nightmare that is the school admissions process at some point in their lives. For first time parents this is fraught with tension. For all parents it is laced with myths. There is a lot of information out there about schools to help them make the decision, but none of it is user friendly or in one place. You need a lot of time and the mind of a researcher to gather it all together and understand what that means for your choices. Can we do the following: - gather all the data together so that parents / carers can filter using all the categories that matter to them - include some sort feedback from parents on schools - make it easy to digest and visually attractive - possibly provide info relating to submission deadlines across the board - should we allow input from schools? - what else?
