The Local Authority commission a Leadership and Learning Partner (LLP) who as a Special Educational Needs Inspector looks at the performance and capability of the school. Please find below a few selected quotes from this recent visit. The full report is sent to Governors to help them evaluate the school performance
The school continues to demonstrate performance at the higher thresholds and descriptors set for Ofsted inspection across all aspects.
As demonstrated by the successful Teaching School bid, this is an outward looking school with the capacity to share and demonstrate its expertise in support of other schools through local and regional links, professional partnerships with other agencies and strategic work within the local authority.
The high quality teaching, learning and therapeutic provision made for all pupils has been sustained throughout the last academic year and the great majority of pupils continue to make expected or better progress against ambitious, upper quartile targets (Progression Guidance).
The school is active in triangulating and moderating teachers’ judgements with other special schools including those in other local authorities, and regular pupil review and progress discussions with teachers, parents and others are used to ensure intervention is timely and properly targeted. The outcomes for pupils in the school compare very well with those of pupils in similar schools.
The headteacher and the governing body are outward looking. They are determined to ensure that the school maintains a high and effective presence as a centre of excellence within the local and wider community of Hampshire schools whilst still delivering the best outcomes for the children, pupils and students placed at the school.
