Ofsted and Performance Data

Please find below our most recent Ofsted reports and relevant information from the Department for Education Performance Tables. 

Monday 29th June 2020

 

Dear Families,

 

Below you find our latest Ofsted report and the accompanying letter from The Chair of Governors, Jane Acreman. Please take the time to read the full report, it is extremely positive.

 

In September 2017, the school was inspected by Ofsted and at that time was judged to be Requires Improvement. When I joined the school full time in April 2019, it was clear we had very low starting points in many areas. This is all documented and acknowledged with HCC, Governance and our HfL advisor. The current Ofsted report shows we have made rapid progress over the last 11 months, which has been backed up by all our partners.  

 

At the start of my headship, I put into place a 3 year School Strategic Development Plan. I am pleased to say that we are ahead of schedule. Since the inspection in March 2020 and despite the Covid-19 pandemic, the school has continued to grow and improve. Recent examples include;

  • The curriculum has been developed further with ‘Knowledge Organisers’
  • We have Bugclub in place to give the children more opportunities to read
  • Each classroom is freshly decorated
  • Each classroom has been fitted with a proactive smart screen
  • The assembly hall now has an 86” smart screen fitted
  • Outside areas are being spruced up with the many years of Ivy growth being removed
  • Miss Strawbridge and I are currently developing the EYFS outdoor area

 

More importantly in May the school successfully achieved the Quality Mark in basic skills (reading, writing and maths) across the primary phase. Miss Strawbridge has been amazing and achieved the Quality Mark in basic skills (reading, writing and maths) for the EYFS. These are highly recognised in Education as benchmarks of school performance.

 

We are currently bench marking against the International Schools Award, Science Mark and the Sports / PE Quality Mark. All of which I am sure will be successful.

 

We have an exceptional staff team, from Miss Harris all the way through to the teachers. They all go that extra mile for the children and have fun doing it.

 

We are already aware of and working on the 4 main areas Ofsted have recommended. Therefore, the School Development Plan for 2020-21 has only needed a small change.

 

Rest assured, the staff and I will continue to ensure nothing less than 100% input is given to your children so that they get the education they deserve.

 

Keep safe and well and we look forward to seeing you all in September.

Peter Hilton
