CLAVERHAM'S Court-De-Wyck Church School has retained its 'Good' Ofsted rating.

The school, which can be found on Bishops Road, was inspected on May 12.

The Ofsted report reads: "Pupils enjoy attending Court-De-Wyck Church School.

"They describe the school as a fun and inclusive place to be. Pupils understand how the school’s values help them to be respectful, understanding of others, and to never give up.

"Parents and carers speak highly of the school’s family feel, the impact of the new headteacher and the provision for pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND).

"The headteacher and her staff have high expectations for pupils’ behaviour and conduct. Pupils are polite and welcoming. They understand the school rules and follow them well. This starts in the early years.

"Children sustain their attention, listen carefully to staff and behave well. Pupils feel safe. Relationships between staff and pupils are positive. Pupils are confident that if fallouts happen, staff will deal with them quickly.

"There is a calm and purposeful environment in classrooms and around the school. Pupils enjoy a wide range of clubs on offer to them, such as football, dance and choir.

"They are proud of the opportunities they have to become eco-warriors, librarians and sports leaders. Pupils say that these roles help them to feel trusted and improve their school."

As well as this, the KS2 SATs results were above national average again, with an outstanding 94% of children achieving the expected standard in maths.

The school's safeguarding efforts were also praised. The report reads: "Leaders ensure that keeping children safe is everyone’s responsibility. They carry out appropriate checks on the suitability of staff to work with pupils. Leaders know their vulnerable pupils and families well.

"Staff use their training to spot quickly pupils who are at risk. Leaders work well with professionals and other agencies. They follow up any concerns they may have quickly."

To improve, it was noted that leaders need to ensure that the curriculum for foundation subjects is implemented fully so that students can build on existing knowledge.
