Ofsted Report 2011

From the Ofsted Inspection report May 2011 In general “This is a good and improving school.” “Pupils are very friendly and welcoming.” “Pupils make good progress as a result of the school’s good and, in some respects, outstanding provision.” “Parents are carers are pleased with the school.” “The headteacher and her well organised senior and middle leadership teams provide strong and ambitious leadership for the whole school. This has, it its heart, inclusion and equality of opportunity.” “Given it has five sites, it is most impressive that the [all-through] school has quickly become one very cohesive community.” “Pupils’ behaviour and attitudes to their learning are good.” Caring for our children and young people “The individualised care, guidance and support pupils receive across the school are outstanding.” “Pupils feel exceptionally safe, secure and well looked after.” “The school operates an extensive and very successful anti-bullying programme.” “There are very effective systems for meeting the needs of any pupils who become especially vulnerable, using, as needed, very well coordinated partnerships with external agencies. Parents and carers are involved quickly.” “Induction and care for pupils at times of transition are excellent.” Academic success “All groups of pupils achieve well.” “By the end of Early Years Foundation Stage, children acquire good skills in personal and social development, which are then developed well throughout the whole school.” “Pupils of all ages who are indentified as having special educational needs and/or disabilities respond well to specific provision for them. This enables them to progress as well as their peers.” “Pupils who speak English as an additional language are well engaged. They also progress as well as other groups.” “Lessons are well paced in a friendly and supportive learning environment.” “There are cases of exemplary practice in using the accurate data about pupils’ attainment levels to set individuals or groups challenging work specifically suited to their needs.” “Across the whole school, pupils benefit considerably from interesting visits out, and many participate in a wide range of out-of-school hours activities.”
