Inspection Reports


We are extremely proud to be awarded an Outstanding judgement in our most recent Ofsted Inspection in January 2013. You can view the report below:

Comments taken from Ofsted Report, January 2013

“Teaching is outstanding over time and is never less than good.”

 “...all groups of pupils make rapid progress in their learning across the school.”

 “Teaching is outstanding because the headteacher, supported by the deputy headteacher and other senior leaders, sets high expectations of pupils’ learning in lessons and is highly effective in rigorously monitoring the quality of teaching to ensure this happens consistently.”

 “The governing body is supportive and also robustly holds senior leaders to account for the performance of the school.”

 “Their [pupils] behaviour is exemplary because of their highly positive attitudes to learning.”

 “ ...the school is highly effective and closes the achievement gap between pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium and all pupils nationally.”

 “...lessons enthuse and interest pupils.”

 “A strong feature throughout the school is the excellent relationships between staff and pupils with staff being very positive in managing pupils’ behaviour and praising and rewarding them for their achievements”. The leadership and management are outstanding.”

 “Members of the governing body know the strengths and weaknesses of the school very well ...and has a good knowledge of data that compares the school to schools nationally. It uses this information to robustly hold senior leaders to account.”

An advantage of being part of the NEXUS group is that we can support each other to improve standards through rigorous monitoring and scrutiny. We have established a monitoring cycle which provides opportunities for leaders and teachers from other schools to visit us at Mangotsfield and analyse our practice and provide feedback. This valuable information will help inform our future actions.
