Ofsted outstanding result at Oversands
Staff and pupils at Oversands School have cause to celebrate following the latest Ofsted inspection of their residential provision, which was judged as outstanding. The judgement only serves to highlight the incredible difference Oversands School continues to makes to its pupils and their families.
The Ofsted Report noted:
- “Residential pupils are treated as individuals in a non-judgemental way. Excellent plans and assessments of risk highlight individual needs, with routines, structures and strategies personalised to meet those needs.”
- “Residential pupils benefit from having outstanding relationships with staff, who provide clear boundaries, along with a safe and stimulating environment. The support, coupled with the structure and routines established, allow new pupils to settle and make progress.”
- “A forward-looking, proactive headteacher, who has a clear vision of how to move the school forward, has created a culture and ethos around the school that is fully supported by other staff members. This creates a warm, happy atmosphere where young people receive consistently outstanding care.”
- “Excellent levels of communication between pupils and staff promote high levels of consultation, where pupils have a voice and contribute regularly to certain aspects of the residential provision.”
Well done to the staff team on a great outcome, which highlights the school’s amazing work ethic and dedication to improving the lives of children and young people in their care.
