Ofsted Short Inspection Report 2017
Here are some of the highlights from our most recent Ofsted report. Please take the time to read the inspection findings in full.
- 'Leaders have invested in development of this area (Early Years) which is now a bright, exciting provision that enables children in the Reception Year to explore and learn.'
- 'Leaders have created an interesting and stimulating learning environment, both indoors and outdoors, to enable children in the early years to discover and learn together.'
- 'You are strongly committed to working with other schools. You play an active role in a number of partnerships. Leaders and teachers value the many opportunities to share ideas, learn from each other and look at pupils’ work together to agree assessment judgements about pupils’ learning.'
- 'Pupils’ outcomes at the end of both key stages 1 and 2 are strong.'
- 'Pupils appreciate that everyone at Lunsford School wants them to reach their full potential. One child told me: ‘The teachers know what I’m capable of and push me to do my very best.’ Another said: ‘The teachers encourage me to be my best so that I can get a good job.’'
- 'The wealth of positive comments from parents show that they value the culture of ‘no ceiling on the expectations for any child’. A number of parents commented on how well their children are supported and enjoy learning. One wrote: ‘I feel my children have really been stretched and their own thirst for learning is furthered by the fantastic learning opportunities.’'
Our previous Ofsted report was published in June 2013. Here are some of it's findings:
'Pupils achieve well. They make good progress from starting points that are similar to national expectations. When they leave at the end of Year 6 their attainment in English and mathematics is above average.'
'Good teaching ensures that pupils are taught the necessary key skills to help them to become successful learners.'
'Pupils’ behaviour in lessons and around the school is good and there are excellent relationships at the school.'
'Pupils feel safe and enjoy coming to school.'
'Regular checks by senior leaders on the quality of teaching ensure that lessons are effective in helping pupils to make good progress.'
'The governing body has established a monitoring strategy which makes sure that leadership is effective in maintaining good achievement. Governors are highly effective in asking senior leaders searching questions about pupils’ achievements and the quality of teaching.'
'Parents provide good support by working well with the school. Pupils’ attendance is above average.'
