Response to Ofsted Visit|
As you are all aware, we were recently visited by an Ofsted Inspection Team at the end of last half term. I am writing to inform you that the final report is now going live on both our own and the Ofsted websites.
The inspector has written a very positive report, highlighting the many strengths that we have as a school family. He highlighted many aspects of leadership, outcomes, teaching, learning and behaviour that are already good, which given that the new staff team has only been together for less than nine months, is great news. He made note of the way staff and governors have worked together to ensure that the school continues to improve, how learning and work across the school is improving, how new staff are making valuable contributions to school, how well pupils behave and how the school’s leaders have an accurate grasp of what is working and what is left to improve. Mr Vaughan also noted the success of our focus on vocabulary, the wide range of extra-curricular activities on offer, how well subjects are being led and the first rate provision for our pupils with SEND. In our teaching, it was noted how effectively staff plan for learning, the role teaching assistants play and how staff use data to ensure teaching is well matched to pupil’s abilities. He believes, as do we, that behaviour is good in school, with pupils talking confidently about life in school and how they feel safe and enjoy learning. He also agreed with us that outcomes are improving, with a high quality of work in books reflecting the skills and concepts being covered in class.
I am really proud of how the school has improved since the previous inspection, particularly in this school year. We started the year with lots of new faces on the team, which has helped bring in new energy and support the many improvements that have been noticed by the inspection team as well as parents and members of the community. We are all ready, teachers and governors alike, to continue to build on these improvements over the next few years.
The full report can be viewed on our website and if parents have any questions about anything contained in it, please do get in touch.
