Ofsted Report February 2016
Partnerships with other schools are good. The school is carrying out a three-year programme, focused on developing strong teamwork across the school, brokered by the local authority. Teaching teams in each classroom, where teachers work closely with their learning support assistants, have already shown a speedier impact on improving outcomes.
Relationships between staff and school leaders are positive. Many staff agree that they feel valued and well supported to improve. One commented that, ‘The staff here work really well as a team, especially when school improvement is involved. Any issues in the school are discussed and resolved to everyone’s best ability’.
