The recent Ofsted report details the range of improvements that need to be made to our school. It reports the same findings as myself and the new Trust discovered during our in depth review of the school last term.

Most schools who find themselves with the challenges detailed in our report have to begin to find new arrangements for leadership, governance and school improvement immediately following the publication of the report. We are in a much stronger position than this as our new arrangements are already in place and our plans are already being enacted.

The Ofsted inspection has taken place at a pivotal time for the school. We started work last term to rapidly improve the school. Supported by John Wilkinson, Head of Teddington School and Philippa Nunn, Head of Waldegrave School we have put an action plan in place to improve teaching and learning, behaviour for learning and achievement across the school.

Our main work this term includes:

  • Re affirming the behaviour for learning policy including sanctions and rewards so that all staff apply it consistently and all students benefit from it 
  •  Ensuring all classrooms are staffed with good teachers 
  • Setting a new standard in how the school is led and operates so that all staff are clear of expectations and have been invested in to ensure they can deliver 
  • Developing the curriculum for 2016/17 in collaboration with Hampton High, Waldegrave and Teddington schools. 
  • Improve homework routines  
  •  Improve marking and the quality of books 
  • Establish targeted staff training and Continuing Professional Development 
  • Open up play spaces and arrange ground works to improve conditions 
  • Assess lunch time arrangements and plan for improvements

There will be challenges ahead as well as great opportunities for students. I am confident that by working together with families, schools within the new Multi Academy Trust and the Local Authority we can make significant changes and improve the achievement and progress of all our students.
