On Tuesday 25th February 2014, we received a visit for one day from Ofsted. An inspector met with various groups of staff, governors, members of the Local Authority and the Southwark Diocesan Board of Education and pupils. In addition she observed lessons, looked at books and the learning environment as well as speaking to pupils and some parents.
We are very pleased with the report that we have just received. The report highlights the progress that has been made by the school, the effective action that has taken place and indicates points for further action in the future.
We are really pleased that the federation of both Christ Church and St. Luke’s is having a positive impact on our learners. The federation is highly valued by staff and the impact of their work is driving improvement. The staff have embraced change and are moving the school on. Teachers and support staff are working together to share best practice and high expectations, receiving and delivering training and building capacity. The inspector noted that pupils are making good progress due to the better quality marking and feedback, pupils are being stretched and behaviour is being managed well and does not disrupt the learning. It was noted that the school is teaching the pupils to be reflective learners who understand their responsibilities. Our work on rights and responsibilities, together with our emphasis on our Christian values is impacting upon the pupils. She noted that the children are taking pride in their work and writing at length, the quality of writing is much improved. She remarked that the leadership of the school is strong and has acted promptly to move the school forward.
However, we are not complacent; we strive to drive further improvement. With your support we will continue to focus on key actions to enable our pupils to achieve and to aspire to the best they can be. We acknowledge that there have had to be some changes but they are now making a difference. Thank you so much for your continued support and feedback.
