Ofsted Rated Governors

Ofsted Inspection  26 March 2019

Governance is very strong.

The Chair of Governors knows the school in detail.

Governors consistently support and challenge leaders. They have a very accurate
knowledge of the school’s strengths. They provide a wide range of skills and experience and have significant specialist knowledge of leadership, finance and special educational needs and/or disabilities. They receive regular detailed reports on school developments, finance, pupils’ achievement and the quality of teaching. They promote the work of the school in the local community and beyond, in Europe, as key participants in the Erasmus project. They have the skills and capacity to provide further outstanding developments for the school.
