Ofsted Information

The school is proud of the quality of teaching it offers and has been judged as outstanding in our last four Ofsted reports.

Highlights from the latest short inspection in November 2017 include:

The leadership team has maintained the outstanding quality of education in the school since the last inspection. Your school is extremely inclusive. All adults support the wide range of pupils’ special educational needs, including those who have disabilities, exceptionally well, so that pupils are happy, very safe and make excellent progress.

You and your senior leadership team have created a culture of calm positivity and respect for each other’s work, which permeates all aspects of the school.

Pond Meadow’s values of ‘learning, independence, respect and equality’ are clear to see throughout the school. Your extremely inclusive approach to understanding pupils’ varied and often complex needs, and to managing their behaviour sensitively, is at the heart of what makes your school such a positive place.

One parent summed up the views of many by saying, ‘Staff never fail to treat my son with dignity and respect. I feel that my child is being fully prepared for life when he leaves the safe and caring environment of this incredibly special school.’

The leadership of safeguarding is outstanding.
