Ofsted Report

In a letter to Mr Scarborough, inspectors noted:

"This school continues to be good."

"The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection."

"...You have acted determinedly and successfully to raise standards. You and the governing body have not shied away from difficult staffing decisions which have improved teaching as well as the quality of senior and middle leadership."

"You have developed a strong senior leadership team with a balance of experience and new ideas. You have gained the loyalty of staff. They understand that the decisions that you made were for the long-term good of the school and they can already see the positive impact. They say that they are now much more accountable for pupils’ progress but feel well supported in making the necessary improvements."

"Along with the local authority and the governing body, you have rectified a significant budget deficit. You managed this while improving pupils’ standards and the quality of teaching."
