    ALDWORTH SCHOOL IS JUDGED AS A GOOD SCHOOL BY OFSTED

    A vibrant learning community with an ethos of ambition and achievement

    During February 2013 we received a full OFSTED inspection. The current inspection framework is considered to be the most challenging framework schools have had to meet. The five inspectors who judged the school agreed the following:

    The headteacher and leadership team are providing strong and clear leadership and the school is in a good position to continue its improvement. In particular, senior leaders demonstrate integrity and wisdom in their leadership. Their high expectations for all staff and students permeate the school community. Students are aware of and respect these high expectations and, consequently, develop high expectations of themselves. (OFSTED 2013)

    Teachers have very good relationships with their classes and are skilled in helping them to learn. (OFSTED 2013)

    The curriculum allows all students to follow their interests as well as to gain the qualifications they need for further education or training. There are good opportunities for students to study vocational courses in school or at the local college. All are guided in their choices well. (OFSTED 2013)

    Parents, staff and students express high levels of confidence in the leadership of the school. (OFSTED 2013)
