Schools Guide Helpdesk
Schools Guide provides a limited helpdesk service to assist users in narrowing down schools that may be suitable for their needs. Schools Guide does not rate or rank schools and does not receive any specific payments, recompense or reimbursements from any school for being suggested by this service. This service is intended for general assistance only. In most cases a range of likely suitable schools will be suggested. These schools may not be an exhaustive list and may not be the most suitable for a particular child. Individuals and families should do their own research and make their own determinations before enrolling at any school.
School Visitors' Star Ratings
Many school pages appearing on this site contain a rating system allowing visitors to the site to post a rating for each school. Ratings are scored from 0 to 6 stars with six stars reperesenting what that visitor considers to be an excellent school.
The system is designed to allow a single vote per school per visitor to avoid having visitors rate schools overly unfairly or excessively and allow the site to, progressively over time, portray the average rating given by a wide number of different visitors. Ratings do not necessarily represent an accurate value of, or quality of, any school and should not be regarded as an accurate portayal of a school's capacity to educate or otherwise school a child. All ratings appearing on this site are entirely independent scores provided by the visitors to this site as they see fit. Those visitors may or may not have an accurate understanding of the school and may or may not score impartially. Parents should not use the ratings as a guide to what constitutes a good school or otherwise.
Port Bimbi Pty Limited does not take responsibility for the accuracy or reliability of the scores presented other than to provide a working system that accurately accounts for the votes as entered by each individual who has visitied the pages of this site and has taken the opportunity to offer a rating.
Should any school have a concern regarding its rating Port Bimbi Pty Ltd encourages it to use its login (every school on this site is enabled with a free login which enables the school to fully manage their content) and simply disable the Ratings system for their page. Please contact Schools Guide staff if you do not know your login details or would like instructions on disabling your ratings system. Alternatively, please feel free to contact Schools Guide staff at any time and request your ratings be disabled. If you believe your ratings have been represented inaccurately please feel free to request a reset. Schools Guide staff hope that every school is rated fairly and where errors occur or inaccuracies are evident we will happily reset any school's rating. Where a reset is performed the system will return to a score of 0 ratings from a total of 0 users for that school. On that school's page it will show 6 blank stars representing a score of 'not yet rated' until such a time as a visitor places a new vote.
