Current Ofsted Report 2021

Covering Letter from Mr Waller, Headteacher

"The final report following the Ofsted inspection has now arrived and will be published on the Ofsted website in the next couple of days. I attach a copy for you. I can only encourage you please to read all of the text and not just look at the judgements because the description of the school is very positive. Ofsted says that ‘Pupils told inspectors that this is a school that is continually improving. Most pupils are happy at Carr Hill High School and are keen to learn. Older pupils said that they ‘learn more now than they did in the past’.

The report confirms that your child attends a school where:

  • Pupils say ‘it is a safe place to be’
  • ‘Poor behaviour in class is rare’
  • ‘Pupils concentrate well on their work in lessons’
  • ‘Leaders have high expectations of pupils’ and ‘want all pupils to do well in their future lives’
  • ‘Leaders and Governors are improving the quality of education for pupils’
  • ‘There is a ‘successful reading curriculum’ to help pupils catch up'
  • ‘Leaders’ identification of SEND is accurate’
  • Pupils ‘attend school regularly’ and ‘are punctual’
  • ‘Leaders ensure a strong culture of safeguarding’
  • ‘Pupils receive appropriate relationships, sex and health education’
  • ‘Leaders have a wide and varied programme of extra-curricular activities to match pupils’ interests’
  • ‘Pupils ‘receive information about the full range of education and training options open to them’ (referring to Post 16)"
