Ofsted inspects schools to provide information to parents, to promote improvement and to hold schools to account for the public money they receive. School inspections are required by law. 

They provide an independent assessment of the quality and standards of education in schools and check whether pupils are achieving as much as they can.

Mr Pritchard is very open with parents regarding his plan for making this school great. The inspectors have acknowledged the huge leaps that the school has made in a short amount of time. However, to reach the overall goals, he needs to deliver a longer-term plan. Mr Pritchard has advised that since his Headship, the school has built solid foundations and is continuing to focus on what is important to improve the school as a whole.

Here are some key points from the last Ofsted Inspection in June 2019:

  • Since taking up his post in September 2017, the headteacher has carried out a ‘root and branch overhaul of the school to set it back on track. As a result, the school is improving rapidly, even though many leaders have only been in post a short time.
  • The headteacher and his senior team have the strong support of staff, pupils, parents and carers.
  • Leaders’ actions have secured a marked increase in attendance in the last year.
  • Pupils are well behaved. They treat each other with respect and act maturely around the school site. Instances of disruption in lessons are rare.
  • Governors have a clear understanding of the school’s strengths and weaknesses. They provide appropriate and effective support and challenge to the leadership team.
  • Pupils feel safe and they are proud of their school. Care and support for them are strong.

We are also delighted with our current parent engagement survey results:
