Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. They report directly to Parliament and are independent and impartial. They inspect and regulate services which care for children and young people, and those providing education and skills for learners of all ages.
Every week, Ofsted carries out hundreds of inspections and regulatory visits throughout England, using their latest framework. The set of documents that they use are updated regularly and as a school we continue to strive to ensure that we are meeting all expectations. The key areas which they are currently grading are: Quality of Leadership and Management; the Quality of Teaching, Learning and Assessment; Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare; Outcomes for Pupils. Together, they enable a judgement to be made on the Overall Effectiveness of the school.
Our school was last inspected in March 2015. Whilst obviously disappointed with the result, we have been working tirelessly to respond to the areas for improvement that were highlighted. We have a robust process for self-evaluation and an inspiring strategic plan to ensure that we are making rapid improvement. Our governing body hold the school to account and we are working closely with our school improvement partner from Hampshire County Council.
Visits to the school are always welcome and we would be delighted to show you where we are on our journey.
