Ofsted Inspections


Our 2017 Ofsted report can be downloaded by visiting the official Ofsted Website at: https://reports.ofsted.gov.uk/provider/21/111307

Here are just a few quotes from the last inspection letter

….  the school has continued to grow since the previous inspection.  The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. 

You have based the school’s mission statement on the views of pupils. This statement reflects the importance that all members of the community attach to doing their best, working hard, and caring for each other and the wider world. Your team has established an ethos in which diversity is promoted and celebrated.

Typical comments from parents include: ‘I cannot speak highly enough about the care my children receive from staff’ and ‘The work my child receives continues to be achievable yet challenging.’ Pupils enjoy their time at the school.

Your team has built on many of the school’s established strengths. The school’s exemplary approach to developing pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural understanding has been enhanced by a thorough approach to promoting British values.

Pupils have continued to benefit from excellent teaching in mathematics. Children in the early years have continued to benefit from a range of opportunities that enable them to make a successful start to life at St Alban’s.

Here are just some of the great things said about our school in the full 2013 report:

“This is a good school”

  • Pupils make good progress and achieve well in all subjects. The results achieved by pupils are rising.
  • Teaching is good across the school. Teachers know their pupils very well and plan lessons which take into account each pupil’s ability. This means that all pupils make good progress.
  • Pupils in the Nursery and Reception classes are particularly well taught and supported, so that they make good progress both academically and personally.
  • Reading is taught successfully, and standards in literacy and numeracy are at national average levels by Year 6.
  • Pupils who speak English as an additional language are very well supported by teachers and other adults, so they are able to catch up quickly and achieve well.
  • Pupils enjoy school and behave well. They feel safe and are proud of their school. Pupils work hard in lessons and want to do well.
  • The headteacher has high expectations of all pupils and staff. She monitors the quality of teaching very carefully, so she has a very clear idea of the strengths of the school, and of which areas still need to improve.
  • The governing body is very effective in holding the school to account. Governors carefully check pupils’ results for themselves, so they can challenge the school to improve further.
  • The school has good relationships with parents, who are very supportive of the school and its leaders.
  • Children from different backgrounds get on well together. The school works successfully to make sure that all pupils feel included and valued as members of the school.
