Adderley School ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted results 2024

The recent Ofsted inspection on 11th and 12th June has given the school ‘outstanding’.

The summary of the report is below, for more information see the link to the school’s web site.

Pupils flourish at this inclusive and nurturing school. Staff have created a caring and supportive environment where everyone is respected. Relationships between staff and pupils are highly positive.

Staff are united in their ambition for every pupil to achieve their full potential. Pupils make strong progress as a result of the well-planned curriculum and high-quality, personalised teaching. Pupils remember what they have been taught in past years and talk about current learning with enthusiasm and interest.

Pupils’ behaviour and attitudes are excellent. They are respectful, well mannered and polite. Pupils enjoy their learning and are proud of their school. They know that adults listen to their concerns and help them. There is a strong sense of belonging and togetherness. This is demonstrated in the genuine care pupils show towards each other.

Pupils take part in a range of inclusive extra-curricular activities, including fencing, archery and ultimate frisbee. They are enthusiastic to take on jobs that require them to help others, such as play leaders. Parents are very positive about the school and value the school’s proactive approach in supporting every pupil to be the best that they can be.

Can You Spare An Hour For A Great Cause?

The Village Hall is putting on a brilliant event in aid of Hope House Children’s Hospice. Can you find an hour (just an hour) to support this event to help raise funds for this worthy cause. Every year Adderley support Hope House through a number of events (Carols round the village is one example). The Village Hall is looking for people to give an hour of their time to help with the June event in aid of this charity.
