Key improvement points from May 2017 Ofsted inspection  

Leadership and


Priority 1: Improve the quality of leadership and management, including in the early years, by ensuring that:

  • leaders carry out an incisive analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of their area of responsibility so that they can create plans with specific actions to bring about improvement

  • subject leaders sharply evaluate the impact of their actions on pupils’ progress to identify what is most effective

  • leaders develop the curriculum so that pupils study a wide range of subjects in depth

  • governors provide a high-quality professional challenge to leaders by asking probing questions to gain a greater understanding of the school’s strengths and weaknesses

  • leaders improve communications with parents so that they are well informed about the school’s work, and ensure that statutory requirements for maintaining the website are met.

Teaching, Learning and Assessment

Priority 2: Improve the quality of teaching, learning and assessment, including in the early years, by ensuring that:

  • teachers consistently use assessment information to plan work that is matched to the learning needs of all pupils, including those who are most able as well as those who have SEN and/or disabilities

  • teachers have secure subject knowledge so that they can deepen pupils’ understanding

  • the school’s marking and feedback policy is applied more consistently so that pupils know what they need to do to improve their work

  • teachers move pupils on to harder work when they have demonstrated that they can achieve the learning tasks set

  • teachers provide pupils with more opportunities to use their English and mathematical skills when learning in other subjects.


Priority 3: Improve pupils’ attendance, especially for boys, disadvantaged pupils and those pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities


Priority 4: Improve pupils’ personal development, behaviour and welfare by:

  • ensuring that all pupils are taught about how to maintain a healthy and safe lifestyle, including how they may stay safe from external dangers related to modern technology

  • implementing the school’s behaviour and rewards system consistently so that pupils are clearer about what is acceptable and unacceptable behaviour.
