On Tuesday 1st March we welcomed Janet Lunn and Susan Birch. HMI and OFSTED inspector’s to complete their section 8 visit. We are thrilled to share some of the highlights from the letter we have received judging Bankside as a GOOD school with many strengths.
Extracts from our recent Ofsted inspection letter:
‘You (Ms Rutty) are dynamic and enthusiastic about your role within the school and wider community. Your love of the job shines through in all your actions. You put families and children at the heart of all you do and know every child by name, remembering personal details and setting high standards of positive relationships throughout the school. Your strong leadership team mirrors this commitment and its members are excited about their roles in leading the school forward. This positive climate has resulted in a stable teaching staff who are passionate about improving outcomes for pupils.
‘Key strengths from the last inspection remain and have been consolidated and built upon, resulting in pupils in Key Stage 2 making exceptional progress. The strong focus on developing personal, social and emotional skills across the school equips pupils to understand their responsibilities and prepares them well for life in modern Britain.’
‘Effective action is being taken to safeguard pupils who are identified as being at risk, and leaders are meticulous in completing actions to support individuals.
