Our Ofsted Report

We are very pleased to share some wonderful news with you regarding our recent Ofsted inspection. We are delighted to inform you that Haygrove School has been rated as ‘Good’ by Ofsted with ‘Outstanding’ for leadership and management throughout all levels in the school. We are incredibly proud of this report and feel it is an accurate reflection of the hard work, dedication, and commitment of our students, staff and the entire school community.

Our school has faced significant challenges in the last year, but our staff, students and wider community have faced them head on displaying excellent strength of character and the determination to succeed shone through in this report.


Key Highlights from the Ofsted Report:


Quality of Education: Ofsted praised our broad and ambitious curriculum, which is adapted to meet the needs of all our students. Our teachers’ expertise and effective training were highlighted as key factors in our students' success. Reading was recognised as a key priority. Our work to build pupils’ vocabulary and strengthen their spoken and written language will allow them to access the curriculum more confidently.


Behaviour and Attitudes: Inspectors noted the calm and purposeful atmosphere in lessons. Students know that poor behaviour will be dealt with fairly and that incidences of bullying and discriminatory language are taken very seriously by staff. ‘The Haygrove Way’ exemplifies the high standards the school expects and students respond well to these expectations. Behaviour is good during both lessons and social times.


Personal Development: The wide range of opportunities for personal development, including extracurricular activities and the pastoral support systems for students' well-being, were recognised as significant strengths of our school. Students access comprehensive information about opportunities for further education and different careers through our Careers Programme, which is valued and help them feel prepared for their lives beyond school.


Leadership and Management: The inspectors acknowledged the strength of leadership from the trust, the school and those responsible for governance work, which ensures students have every opportunity to become the best versions of themselves and access to an excellent quality of education. Special mention was made regarding the challenges faced this year due to the issues with the school site and the leadership demonstrated at all levels that effectively supported students and staff.


Ofsted have also provided us with some valuable recommendations to help us enhance our provision. We will continue to work tirelessly to address these areas for improvement and to provide the best possible education for your children.
