How do I research primary school's reputations over a large area?
Many of you know I am moving and if things don't go to plan I think I will choose to look at other areas away from where I have grown up. I will be looking for a rural location so the reputation of the local primary school is very important to me as it will be very small local schools and in most places only the choice of one school so it is important it has a good rep. Anyway how can I go about sussing out a schools rep are without visiting each area and when the odds are I know noone in the area to ask

You could phone or email the schools and ask them for references. Ask them what extra-curricular activities they provide as that seems to be a good indicator of how committed the staff are. I'd suggest phoning because you'll be able to tell a lot from the tone of voice of the person you're talking to.
If you're getting good vibes about one particular area, then it might be time to visit.
