Ofsted

Ofsted inspected our school on 19th & 20th May 2015. We are delighted with the outcome:

Birchwood C of E is a good school with
outstanding provision for early years.

 

Summary of the key findings for parents and pupils:

  • The headteacher and other senior leaders provide strong and ambitious leadership. As a result, the school has made significant improvements since its last inspection.

  • Children get off to an outstanding start to their school lives in the vibrant and purposeful early years setting.

  • Adults throughout the school are excellent role models, helping to ensure that pupils are well behaved, polite and respectful.

  • Pupils’ achievement, particularly in mathematics and reading, is improving rapidly. Pupils also achieve well in other subjects such as science and art.

  • Pupils feel safe and the school prepares them well to avoid danger, including on the internet.

  • Teachers’ effective use of questioning to develop pupils’ language and reasoning skills is a significant factor in helping pupils to make good progress.

  • Governors take decisive actions that reflect their passion and determination to make a positive difference for the pupils in the school.

  • The relentless drive of the headteacher and the commitment and hard work of staff ensure that teaching is good and improving.

  • Pupils’ behaviour is good. Their positive attitudes to learning and each other are one of the reasons why they make good progress.
