Ofsted comments  

What Ofsted had to say about our Governors:

The governance of the school:

  • Governors have fully implemented their action plan to strengthen their role, following the external review of governance after the previous inspection. They now provide good support and challenge to senior leaders, for example, through closer monitoring of the school’s work and frequent focused visits.
  • Governors have a good knowledge of data and use this well to hold the school to account for its additional spending on pupil premium and primary sports funding to ensure good value for money. They receive detailed reports on the school’s work, particularly on the impact of teaching on pupils’ learning and progress. Governors use all of this information to form an accurate view of the quality of teaching.
  • Governors have steered the development of good arrangements for managing the performance of the headteacher and staff, by linking targets to whole-school priorities for improving teaching and raising achievement. They ensure good teaching is rewarded and tackle any underperformance
