Ofsted Monitoring Inspection Report 2023
We are delighted to enclose Ofsted’s letter regarding our recent monitoring visit on 31 January. It was wonderful to welcome HM Inspector Jen Southall into our school and share with her all the improvements and changes that have been made.
A monitoring visit differs from Ofsted’s process for a full inspection. In a monitoring visit, the Inspector can only comment on one thing, namely whether the school is making progress or if it is not making progress. It does not issue a grade.
We are proud that Ofsted recognises that our changes are “having a positive impact on pupils’ learning” and that “work to raise staff expectations of what pupils will know and understand is making a demonstrable difference”.
It was lovely to see how the Inspector recognised the children’s contributions to our school community’s commitment to improvement when she says, “They work hard in lessons and persevere when they find things challenging”.
Please see the full report below.
Ofsted Inspection Report 11-12 January 2022
We were visited by Ofsted in January 2022 for a standard inspection. A copy of the Head Teacher and Chair of Governor's letter to parents is provided here and includes a copy of Ofsted's report.
The lead inspector Stephen McShane and his colleague Marie Thomas spent two days visiting both sites, meeting staff, pupils and governors and getting to know what it is like to be a pupil at Oak Hill. They also heard from over 70% of our families who kindly completed the Ofsted parent view survey and some parents who also spoke directly to the inspectors.
We are grateful for everyone’s contributions to the inspection process which staff and governors have all agreed was a positive and fair experience.
