Ofsted inspection February 24th and 25th 2016 – “Pupils love coming to school”
The school community is delighted to announce that following the inspection in February Arnett Hills JMI received a judgement of ‘Good’ for overall effectiveness, as well as a judgement of ‘Good’ in all areas of the inspection.
It was pleasing to note that the inspectors felt that:
“The school’s work to promote pupils’ personal development and welfare is outstanding.” They also commented on the fact that “Pupils are great ambassadors for the school. They are friendly, sociable and articulate. They develop high levels of confidence and a thirst for knowledge, which will serve them well in later life.”
“Pupils develop positive attitudes towards learning because relationships with their teachers are exceptionally strong. Teachers take great care to help pupils understand the purpose of their work and the importance of doing well.”
“Teaching assistants are deployed well to support pupils. They are well informed, helping pupils sensitively to improve their skills and knowledge.”
“The school has an excellent partnership with parents.”
Governors support the school well. “Governors and school staff are extremely diligent in ensuring that pupils are kept safe.”
The school recently received a Bronze award for participation in the Sainsbury School Games Mark Scheme.
