Inspection Reports


Statements from the report

“The headteacher has astutely recruited new strong leaders and teachers. A successful drive to improve the quality of teaching and learning has led to confident, improved practice.”

“The headteacher, senior leaders and governors have implemented robust plans, which are accelerating students’ progress after an earlier decline.”

“Teachers have strong subject knowledge and captivate the interest of their students.”

“Students’ behaviour is good and improving. Their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is strong. Students are well prepared for the responsibilities and diversity of life in modern Britain.”

“The restructured leadership team has rapidly steered change and put in place strong systems and routines that are leading to improvements in students’ attainment and progress, reversing a decline after the previous inspection.”

“Leaders set high expectations of students and staff and have created a culture of respect and tolerance. Leaders at all levels are determined to make a difference to young people’s lives.”

“Students benefit from good teaching. Lessons are generally well planned to engage students in challenging activities. Teachers’ questioning encourages deeper thinking and understanding in most lessons.”

“In lessons students enjoy their learning, behaviour is positive and they make good progress. Teachers work hard to form good relationships with students; they understand what barriers to learning the students might have, and help them to overcome these barriers. Students feel comfortable in their learning environment; they are keen to contribute and learn from mistakes.”

“The school’s work to keep students safe and secure is very effective. Parents are positive about the school and would recommend it to others. There is a strong culture of care and nurture, which is appreciated by students and their parents.”

“Pastoral care for students is strong, particularly for those who face challenging circumstances. Teachers and support staff build the confidence of the large number of students who have complex needs or whose circumstances might make them vulnerable. Staff liaise effectively with external agencies in cases where further support is required. These students appreciate the care and support that adults in school provide for them.”

“The behaviour of students is good. Students behave well in lessons and appear happy and content in all parts of the school.”

“Students respect the environment, there is virtually no litter around the school, and the atmosphere is one of purposeful calm.”

“The school’s approach to behaviour management encourages students to reflect on the causes and consequences of any poor behaviour.”
