School Description

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. The school belongs to a partnership of Merton’s specialist education support schools, collectively known as Melbury College, of which you are the executive headteacher. Since taking up post at the beginning of 2017, you have made a number of positive changes within the school. You have increased leadership capacity by revising your senior team and developing middle leader posts. This has led to a sharper focus on implementing school improvement priorities. You acknowledge that the new systems that have been introduced now need time to embed fully throughout the school so that all leaders have a clear understanding of their individual and joint responsibilities. The recently reviewed vision and values are apparent in the ethos of the school. There is an emphasis on the development of the ‘whole child’ through personalised learning to meet individual needs. The school has a calm and purposeful atmosphere. Pupils say that they feel happy and are well supported by staff. They have positive attitudes and are enthusiastic about the school’s rewards system and how they can gain points towards their chosen reward. Pupils talk about their future career aspirations and have a clear idea of how to reach their goals. Pupils behave well overall and any issues are dealt with effectively and promptly. The behaviour for learning in lessons we visited was strong.
