Broadbeck celebrates Ofsted announcement
Staff and pupils at Broadbeck Learning Centre are celebrating the official Ofsted announcement that they are good with outstanding features.
The Oftsed report praised the school, its staff and their overall approach to the education, care and support of each young person.
Here are the highlights from the report:
• Leaders’ high expectations of all staff and pupils provide the drive needed to secure the exceptional progress that pupils make in their personal development. Staff’s collective commitment, passion and skill ensure that they meet the complex needs of the pupils.
• Pupils quickly develop trusting relationships with skilful and caring staff and so engage purposefully in learning. Pupils’ attendance dramatically improves from previously very low levels. They make outstanding progress in developing skills to manage their emotions and feelings.
• Leaders are diligent about all aspects of pupils’ safety and welfare. As a result, pupils are safe and feel safe, especially those who have been traumatised by previous experiences.
• Teachers and other staff work exceptionally closely together. They share responsibility for pupils’ progress, particularly in reading, writing and mathematics. As a result, pupils learn well in the range of activities provided across the day. Consequently, pupils make good progress towards the challenging individual targets they are set.
Davina Bell, Head Teacher at the Learning Centre commented on the result:
“The staff and pupils are an amazing team and it’s brilliant to have the dedication of the entire team acknowledged. I’d like to say a big thank you and well done to everyone involved”.
Well done to everyone at Broadbeck Learning Centre.
