School outstanding in all areas – report
2:00pm Tuesday 20th August 2013 in News
AN Evesham school is celebrating an Ofsted report which states it is outstanding in all areas.
St Egwins Middle School, Worcester Road, Evesham, was inspected by the Government watchdog in June and headteacher Carol Kennedy said she was delighted with the results.
The inspection team said the school was outstanding in the four areas which were being looked at – achievement of pupils, quality of teaching, behaviour and safety of pupils, and leadership and management.
In the report, which can be read in full at ofsted.gov.uk, the inspectors wrote that the school had built on the results of the last inspection to help ensure that pupils achieve consistently well.
Teaching was described as consistently good or better, with much that is outstanding.
Lessons are exciting and fast-paced.
Teachers always expect high standards and hard work from their pupils.
The reports states: “The headteacher shows great determination in her drive to ensure that all pupils succeed.
She is supported very well by senior and subject leaders.
“Staff are also highly ambitious for pupils. They are fervent in their aim to get the best from each one, academically and personally.
“Staff encourage them to see their potential, work hard and aim high.
“As a result, pupils grow tremendously in confidence.”
One recommendation made by the inspectors to help the school improve its marks even further was to increase the amount of outstanding teaching by making sure that all teachers use questions in lessons which encourage all pupils to give full answers and think deeply about their work.
