Please find below our most recent Ofsted reports, and relevant information from the Department for Education Performance Tables.
I am pleased to be able to share with you our most recent OFSTED report below. Thank you to those of you who made time to talk to the inspection team, completed the online survey, or sent messages of support - this was hugely appreciated by all our staff, and is an important part of the inspection process.
You will be aware that we are on a journey of school improvement, and we are delighted that the OFSTED team fully agreed with the judgements that we had already made about our school.
We are particularly proud of the elements of the report that are already graded Good: pupils’ personal development, behaviour and welfare; early years provision and the effectiveness of leadership and management.
You will see that the hard work of all our staff, governors and pupils has been recognised, and we are closing the gaps in our children’s learning. However, as with any journey of improvement, it will take time for all our developments to have a full impact on outcomes for pupils. As a result, we agree with the OFSTED team that the outcomes for teaching and learning and pupils outcomes must remain at a Requires Improvement judgement as present.
We have agreed three key areas to continue to improve:
Continue to work with parents to improve school attendance – this is still below the national average.
Continue to develop the evaluation of our work by:
Setting clear milestones for progress in all subjects
Checking that additional funding is reducing the attainment gaps between groups of pupils, including disadvantaged pupils.
Use pupils’ starting points to continue to improve teaching across the curriculum.
The whole staff team are committed to continuing to make the necessary changes for Bassett Green to become a truly excellent school, offering the very best opportunities to your children and enabling them to fulfil their academic potential.
Please do take the time to read the report and see all the good work that is already happening here at Bassett Green - I look forward to working with you in the coming months to continue our journey of improvement.
If you have any questions, or would like to discuss the report in more detail, please do not hesitate to contact me at the school.
