When we meet prospective parents and staff, one of the things that we tell them is that we are a reflective school. We want to know what we are doing well, we are open to constructive feedback, and we want to get better. This approach is reflected in the open and honest relationship we have with parents and with the OWN Trust.
This same approach is reflected in the way we consider the outcomes of an Ofsted Inspection. You will find below a link to our most recent Ofsted report from November 2016. As you will see, it is a very positive report, and we felt that it captured the strengths of our school whilst also pointing out areas we could improve. Thankfully, the next steps were all areas that we were already working on and part of our ongoing journey as a school.
By the end of 2017, we had already introduced a thorough tracking system so that we could monitor the progress of all children, in all subjects. Our work as part of the OWN Trust has seen this develop even further as we now share our data with the Leadership Group and compare our progress with the other schools in the Trust. When we redesigned our curriculum in 2018/19, one of our aims was to provide our most able pupils with opportunities to achieve high standards. This work has continued as we have made other improvements to our curriculum. Lastly, we have ensured that our school website is kept up to date. The appointment of our Digital Lead has meant that our website has gone from strength to strength.
Like all schools, we are on a journey. Parents and staff tell us that one of our strengths is our drive to get better and better at what we do. When Ofsted next visit us, we look forward to showing them how far we have come.
