A Statement by the Governors
In the interests of transparency, all schools are required to publish an annual statement setting out the key issues that have been faced and addressed by the governing body over the last year, including an assessment of the impact of the governing body on the school.
Here is a brief outline of our issues and impact since January 2015.
In January 2015, the school was subject to a Section 5 OFSTED inspection with an overall outcome of 'Requires Improvement'. Key Areas for Improvement were :
1 Improve teaching and learning so that it is consistently good or better, in order to raise pupils’ achievement in reading, writing and mathematics, by making sure that:
expectations of what pupils can achieve are always high enough
the work set is always hard enough so that pupils are consistently challenged to make the best possible progress and achieve the highest standards
pupils are always given very clear guidance in teachers’ marking about what they need to do to improve their work, and that checks are made that pupils respond to this advice
pupils have more opportunities to write in different styles in different subjects
there are more opportunities for pupils to use and apply their mathematical skills and knowledge to solve practical problems
staff have more opportunity to observe and share outstanding teaching in order to improve their own practice.
2 Improve the quality of leadership and management by ensuring that:
middle leaders become more involved and accountable for making checks and improving the quality of teaching and learning in their areas
governors hold the school to account more effectively for improving the quality of teaching and pupils’ achievement and improve their knowledge and skills in the use and analysis of pupils’ performance data.
3 Improve the quality of provision in the early years by:
using information about children’s achievement and progress to plan activities that challenge children to extend their learning and make more rapid progress ensuring that there is more focus and purpose to children’s outdoor learning
In response to this, the governors drew up a detailed Post-OFSTED Action plan to address these issues, including undertaking a comprehensive review of Governance.
