School Description

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the previous inspection. Staff are overwhelmingly positive about your strong and inspiring leadership. In a short space of time, with the excellent support of the interim deputy headteacher, you have lifted the staff’s spirit and given them a clear vision for the future of the school. You ensure that teachers and pupils do their very best and strive to do even better. The swift, yet sensitive, way in which you engendered this collective team effort is a remarkable success in the light of the many staff changes, including that of the headteacher in the autumn term 2016. With the support of other leaders and governors, any slippage in pupils’ outcomes, safety and welfare was avoided. The interim deputy headteacher leads this special school expertly when you are not on site as you are also leading your own school. She is an excellent role model. Staff value her dedication and say that she is always available if they need support. They feel confident to share any ideas or concerns. Staff new to their role are pleased with the quality of the support they are getting. The interim leadership is effective because everyone is clear about what needs to be done. You quickly identified key priorities, tackled those that required urgent attention and drafted a clear plan of action for further developments. It is too soon to see the full impact of some of your strategies. In some areas, such as the precise monitoring of teaching, the management of staff performance and the quality of some safeguarding records, you have had insufficient time to embed effective practice fully.
