OFSTED Report – June 2018
In June 2018 we had a very successful Ofsted inspection which judged:
“This school continues to be good.”
Below are the headlines:
- The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school and has been proactive in addressing the priorities identified since the last inspection, four years ago.
- The governing board has been restructured. Governors use a range of skills to challenge and support leaders.
- The headteacher is developing a strong and determined leadership team that works closely together.
- Leaders set high expectations of all pupils and encourage pupils to be ambitious and have high aspirations for themselves.
- The needs of the pupils in the specially resourced provision are well met and enjoy a broad range of subjects and activities.
- Leaders at all levels are establishing a deep, broad and balanced curriculum which makes links between subjects. As a result, a strengthened curriculum is emerging with opportunities for pupils to take the curriculum outside the classroom, igniting their enthusiasm for learning.
- Safeguarding is effective with all safeguarding policies and procedures fit for purpose, staff well trained and knowledgeable designated safeguarding leaders.
- Leaders work closely with external agencies and, when concerns arise, take swift action and make sure that any concerns are followed up thoroughly.
- Pupils have a thorough understanding of different forms of bullying and how to keep themselves safe; pupils, staff, parents and carers are overwhelmingly positive about how well the school keeps pupils safe.
Leaders and those responsible for governance should ensure that:
- disadvantaged pupils make consistently good progress, including in Key Stage 1 and Year 3.
- all pupils, especially boys, are appropriately challenged by their reading texts.
