We are a “GOOD” school. OFSTED report.

We are a “GOOD” school. OFSTED report (click here to see the report).

 

 

Students, parents, staff and governors can all take pride in last week’s announcement that Ofsted has judged The North School to be ‘good’ in every category, following an inspection at the end of September.

An “ethos of high ambition”, staff who are “committed to the vision of improving the achievement and well-being of every pupil” and “students who are proud of their school” were all praised by the inspectors, who also paid tribute to the school’s “highly active” governors.

This is an excellent result and I am delighted that the school is continuing to show such dramatic improvement

All the staff, and especially the students, should be congratulated for the overall outcome. We can all be very proud of our school.

The Ofsted report rated the school ‘good’ in each of five categories, including effectiveness of leadership and management, quality of teaching, learning and assessment and personal development, behaviour and welfare.

Inspectors said the rating, which is a significant improvement over the June 2015 assessment, reflected “high quality support” from the Swale Academies Trust as well as the fact that senior staff had “established an ethos of high ambition throughout the school”.

Inspectors commented on better attendance, the support of our governors, our broad and balanced curriculum and our wide range of extra-curricular opportunities. The report also noted that our sixth form students “achieve highly in both academic and vocational pathways”.

The journey of improvement at The North School has been recognised and confirmed, but we remain firmly committed to driving improvements so that our school continues to offer the very best for our students.

 

Well done everyone!

 

Mrs Lawrence

Head of School
