  • SIAS strengths included:
  • The Christian vision and inspiring leadership of the head teacher, supported well by all staff and governors
  • The whole school environment, which clearly shows the commitment to the Christian ethos and the teaching and learning of religious education
  • The ethos, based on Christian values that are made explicit in every aspect of the practice and policy of the school
  • The teamwork of leadership, governors and staff that drive a climate of ongoing evaluation and development
  • One parent commented, ‘This school lives and breathes its Christian values’.  Children can talk confidently about the school values and how these impact on their own attitude and behaviour towards one another

Required improvements included:

  • Enable pupils greater involvement in collective worship, both in terms of planning and leading worship

Ofsted key findings included:

  • Broad Chalke is an outstanding school. All groups of pupils make rapid progress and by Year 6 attainment in English and mathematics is high. This is a significant improvement since the last inspection
  • Teaching is outstanding and all teachers assess pupils very carefully, regularly setting targets for improvement. Pupils are fully involved in this process and very clear about how to improve their work. This is another significant improvement since the last inspection
  • An outstanding leadership team, working together with a skilled and challenging governing body, has ensured that all key issues identified at the time of the last inspection have significantly improved. High quality professional development has led to knowledgeable subject leaders and outstanding teaching. This, together with a reorganisation of staff and systematic performance management and monitoring of teaching, clearly demonstrates that the school has strong capacity to build on its many strengths

Needed improvements included ensuring:

  • ...that staff in the Early Years Foundation Stage use national trend data to compare and evaluate outcomes, especially children’s achievement
