Ashbrooke School celebrates Ofsted report

23 September 2022

Staff, pupils and parents are celebrating at Ashbrooke School following the publication of their latest report by Ofsted. The school has been judged as outstanding in all areas, including quality of education, behaviour and attitudes, personal development, and leadership and management.

The report was glowing in praise for the school, its staff and the overall approach to the education, care and support of each child.

Highlights from the report include:

  • Leaders are determined that pupils will be successful after Ashbrooke. 
  • Many parents are full of praise for the school and the positive difference they have seen in their child since moving to Ashbrooke. 
  • The curriculum is purposefully designed to meet the needs of all pupils in the school. The subject content matches the national curriculum. All subject plans are extremely detailed and well structured.
  • Pupils’ personal development is at the heart of every subject lesson in the school.
  • The teaching of reading is highly effective. Leaders recognise that pupils need to master phonics. All staff are trained to deliver the school’s chosen reading scheme. Every morning, the reading leader practices a daily phoneme with staff to refresh their training. Pupils who can read fluently access a wide range of books. They are given lots of opportunities to choose books and read quietly.
  • Personal, social and health education (PSHE) is an important subject at Ashbrooke. PSHE is carefully planned. Pupils learn about themselves and their world.

Jo Burdon, Head Teacher, commented: 

"I am immensely proud of ‘Team Ashbrooke.’ This result is richly deserved and shows the dedication and commitment shown by staff and pupils at the school every single day. It is great to see this recognised by Ofsted and I am delighted with the report which highlighted so many positives and acknowledged the efforts of every member of our school community."
