It gives me great pleasure to attach the very latest Ofsted report.
The school had a Section 5 inspection in February 2018 and the inspector recognised the hard work that we have invested into the school to ensure it is the very best it can be:
Inspectors recognised that:
- Pupils achieve high standards in reading, writing and mathematics as a result of effective teaching
- Pupils value the friendly ethos that pervades the school.
Thank you to our wonderful parent body for the support that you give the school. I am so proud of the journey we have been on from Special Measures to Good.
Section 5 OFSTED Report February 2018
Wallop Primary School was placed in requiring SPECIAL MEASURES in November 2014. Each term Her Majesty’s Inspector (HMI) for schools came in to the school to conduct a check of progress towards coming out of SPECIAL MEASURES called a section 8 Monitoring Visit. The school had three of these and during the last monitoring check the HMI changed the inspection from a monitoring visit (section 8) to a full Ofsted inspection (section 5) and our school was taken out of Special Measures and was graded as a school that ‘REQUIRES IMPROVEMENT’, (with ‘Good’ in Personal development, behaviour and welfare).
Our next aim is to continue to improve to become ‘GOOD’. We know we are very much on the way to attaining this judgement. We have actions to improve, as leaders we know what we have to improve, but OfSTED recognise that “since September 2015, new senior leaders have brought about rapid improvements. The culture and ethos of the school are much more positive and focused on pupils’ learning. Leaders are clear about the priorities for further improvement”.
We were inspected in May 2017 under the Section 8 inspection (RI monitoring visit) and the school is seen as "senior leaders are taking effective action to tackle the areas requiring improvement identified at the recent section 5 inspection".
We will continue to work hard to ensure that the outcomes for our children here at Wallop are the very best they can be. I would also like to thank our parents for the continued support and trust that you put in us to improve our school.
The very best way to get to know our school properly is to come and have a look around or, if you're too far away and can't get in to see us, please give us a call and speak to Mr Lambert or Mrs Sexton.
