As you are aware, Broadstone Middle School was inspected by Ofsted at the end of last term. I am delighted to let you know that we been judged as GOOD in every category.
We were pleased that the inspectors saw the great opportunities we offer as well as how much children are encouraged to understand themselves as learners. Highlights from the report include:
- Pupils take pride in their work.
- Pupils readily engage in conversation and show courtesy towards each other.
- Staff support the social and emotional needs of pupils well.
- The dedicated and ambitious leadership team have worked hard to steer a course which is well thought through and based on educational research.
We were delighted that a pupil commented that “this is a school you can rely on”.
I would like to thank the staff for all their hard work. The school has been on a significant journey and they have done all they can to ensure our pupils achieve academically, physically and emotionally.
The support from parents was truly humbling. Your positivity with the inspectors when you spoke to them was wonderful. The surveys completed at such short notice were key evidence for all we had been working on. Thank you for taking the time to support us through the inspection and indeed, for all you support throughout our journey.
However, your children were, as always, the “stars of the show”. Their conversations with the inspectors were noted as being interesting, honest and enthusiastic. Their behaviour, as ever, was exemplary. They were keen to share all they do and the inspectors were most impressed. They were quite simply, marvellous.
The full report is currently available on our website and will be available on the Ofsted website within 5 working days. Whilst we have achieved a “Good”, don’t think for a minute we’ll be resting on our laurels. We have many plans to ensure learning is even more meaningful and successful in the future.
We are now looking forward to ensuring we continue to be the best we can be – better even! Should you have any questions about the process or the report, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
As ever, thank you for your continued support.
Mrs D Wilks
