Ofsted Report 2018

One of Her Majesty's Inspectors and four additional inspectors carried out the Inspection. Inspectors observed learning across the school and visited classrooms jointly with senior and middle leaders. Documentation was scrutinised including; information related to the tracking of the academic and personal progress of students; detailed analysis of students' attainment and progress; the school's self-evaluation; minutes from meetings of the governing body; and evidence to demonstrate how the school supports students whose circumstances may make them vulnerable. Meetings were held with the Headteacher, senior and middle leaders, and representatives from the governing body and from the trust, a group of staff and two parents. Inspectors spoke informally to pupils in classrooms and around the school over the two days of inspection. They also had meetings with three groups of pupils. Inspectors took account of the views expressed by 58 parents who responded to Parent View, Ofsted's online questionnaire, and the written text comments made by 223 parents.
