    HMI Monitoring Report 4

    21 April 2015

    We are pleased to provide you with the latest monitoring report from HMI. The inspection took place on 19 and 20 March. We are delighted that the continued improvement within the school has been fully noted and the hard work and determination of staff and students is not only recognised, but is reaping results.
    Brief highlights from each section are provided below, but we encourage you to read the full report to really appreciate the progress the school has made.

    • Reliable school data confirm that more students throughout the school are set to achieve their individual targets. The improvements seen in students’ achievement in Key Stage 3 at the last visit continue to gather pace. The decisive actions being taken are also now beginning to have an impact on students’ attainment and progress in Key Stage 4.
    • Students are beginning to achieve more over time, because they are making better progress in more lessons and subjects than was previously the case. This is because of improvements in the quality of teaching. From the school’s own monitoring evidence, the proportion of teaching that is good or better continues to increase in most departments.
    • Regular, sharply focused student performance meetings hold staff to account for individual student outcomes and are ensuring that appropriate student support is being put into place more quickly than was previously the case.
    • Inspectors noted an increased pace in students’ learning, some skilful questioning used to engage students and check out their understanding as the lesson progresses, and more attention given to meeting the needs of different students in the class. The quality of marking and feedback is improving, and evidence seen during this monitoring inspection confirms most teachers are following the school’s marking policy.
    • In lessons and around the school, almost all students are polite and well-mannered and have positive attitudes to adults and one another.
    • Tracking information confirms that most students are developing more positive attitudes to their learning.
    • During this visit, the staff and students inspectors spoke with were much more enthusiastic about the changes being made and the school’s progress to date. Several individuals provided compelling evidence and examples of the positive difference this had made for them personally.
    • Members of the governing body have a wealth of knowledge and experience. They demonstrate a thorough understanding of their strategic role in running the school and provide good levels of challenge and support.
