OFSTED HIGHLIGHTS EFFECTIVE GOVERNANCE IN RECENT VISIT

24th July 2018

Members of the Governing Body were pleased to be able to meet Ofsted inspectors at the recent inspection. The now published report highlighted the positive progress being made on our journey of improvement, specifically celebrating the gains HWPS have made with pastoral care ‘The school’s work to promote pupils’ personal development and welfare is outstanding.’  and the school leadership ‘The headteacher leads the school with great passion and integrity. Staff at all levels are fully behind her commitment to school improvement, because it puts pupils’ needs at the heart of all of their work.’

We were also pleased to have the work of the Governing Body acknowledge ‘Governance is effective. The governing body is equally adept at supporting and challenging leaders. Governors know exactly where the quality of education the school provided was, where it is now, and where they want to take it next. Governors are ambitious for the school and pupils. Governors have high regard for the headteacher, and understand and fulfil their role with regard to managing her well-being. They are also not afraid to ask highly pertinent questions about the focus and pace of improvement. Governors’ monitoring visits have a clear purpose. They ensure that governors can fully explore what leaders are telling them or reporting to them.’
