Ofsted and School Performance

Front Lawn had its last full inspection in February 2014. This was the first inspection following a change of leadership and conversion to an all-through Primary school. The previous infant school was in Special Measures so we were delighted to receive a "good" rating in all areas at the inspection.

 

We received a Section 8 ‘short inspection’ in November 2018 which concluded that, although the school was still ‘Good’, it had made continued progress from the last inspection which means it might be ‘outstanding’ if inspected for a full Section 5.

 

This means the school’s next inspection will be within 12 months and will be a full Section 5 inspection. The most recent report can be found here. 

 

The schools' results which, from a very low baseline, are now consistently above National levels at all phases in the school combined with the excellent bespoke curriculum and strong behaviour make the school hopeful that the outcome of the next inspection will be very positive. 

 

Here are some quotes from our previous inspection report...

 

‘Since the previous inspection you and your leadership team have driven the school forward with grit and determination. You have built an exceptionally strong team of teachers around you, imbuing them with a sense of pride and ambition. This is keenly felt by the community you serve, as noted by one parent who told me, ‘The care the school has provided for my child has been out of this world.’

 

‘Teachers’ questioning is first class and they use the information they gather to regroup pupils, reshaping tasks to ensure that they are at just the right level to stretch, challenge or support their learning. The team of highly skilled teaching assistants works well with teachers to offer pupils excellent support.’

 

‘Pupils love their school and the sense of adventure that it brings. Every topic they learn about has a feature which considers how they will improve their community.’

 

‘Leaders are skilled, ambitious and creative. They have an excellent understanding of the school’s effectiveness and use this to create well-judged plans to improve it further. They do not follow conventions, and constantly question the best way to do things rather than just copying the methods of others.‘

2018 Early Years and Key Stage 1 Results

 

Schools are not required to publish their results for the end of Reception or Year 2 but we feel as parents or prospective parents and carers, you should know how the children perform at every point.

 

We are pleased that our results at the end of Reception and Year 2 have been better than National results and improving consistently over the last 3 years.
