The outcome of our most up to date inspection on 30th January is now available for publication.
This was a short inspection to check that we remain Good and I am delighted to report that the inspection team were resounding in their judgment of the school. Not only do we continue to be judged securely Good, we are very close to moving to outstanding.
Key highlights include:
- Recognition of the strong moral purpose that underpins our curriculum to support all our students in their ongoing aspirations,
- Recognition that the leadership team have “the best interests of pupils at the forefront of their minds”
- Our Culture for Leaning that drives our “tolerant, respectful community” where all students are equally valued
- Our pupils are “polite and show respect to each other”
- The significant work that we have put into ensuring that marking is appropriate and enables students to make progress was recognised and praised
- Disadvantaged students are now making the same progress as their peers
- The outcomes for our Sixth Form students continue to be above national figures
- The quality of the impartial careers advice and guidance given to our students
- The safeguarding of our children who feel safe in school, and know who to report issues to
- That we deal quickly with issues of bullying
- Our drugs, alcohol and e-safety education
We are not yet outstanding because:
- The attendance of some of our students is less than it should be
- The progress of disadvantaged students in the previous year was not quite as good as we would hope
