OFSTED 

Rowan Gate has been recognised by Ofsted as being an outstanding again in every category – the Achievement of Pupils, the Quality of Teaching, the behaviour and safety of pupils, the leadership and management.

Inspectors said that:

“Pupils, regardless of their background, make outstanding progress”

“Pupils’ achievement in literacy, mathematics, personal development and behaviour are excellent.”

“Teaching is outstanding which brings about pupils outstanding achievement.  Teachers and other adults who support learning provide excellent development in pupils’ language and communication skills.”

“In lessons adults make sure that all pupils’ needs are met, with a wide range of switches, recorders, computer equipment and other aids.”

“Pupils who receive pupil premium funding make outstanding progress in line with that of their peers in school”

“The school sports funding is used effectively and has resulted in pupils thoroughly enjoying physical activity both in school and outside of school”

“Behaviour is outstanding and pupils feel that behaviour is school is very positive.”

“Children in the Early Years Foundation Stage make outstanding progress.”

“The Head teacher has made sure that following the highly positive result in their previous inspection the school did not become complacent and has in fact continued to improve.  The Senior Leadership Team and Governors have created a solid team result in outstanding leadership and management at all levels.”

“Teachers and Parents rightly feel that the leadership and management are excellent and that senior leaders listen to their views and where needed act upon them.   Staff are very proud of their school and a number stated they felt the school was a happy place, where they were always encouraged to improve their skill and given every opportunity to do so.  This is clear evidence that the school has a positive attitude to make sure that everyone in the school has equal opportunities.”
