Ofsted Inspectors say that senior leaders and governors at Carisbrooke College are “taking effective action to tackle the areas requiring improvement identified at the recent section 5 inspection in order for the school to become good”.
The monitoring visit follows a full inspection in October 2017, when the education watchdog found the school “Requiring Improvement”.
Praise for leadership
The Executive Headteacher, Matthew Parr-Burman, was recognised for implementing sharply-focused and realistic plans to improve the school.
The inspector found the school to be a happier and more cohesive community, with shared higher expectations of what pupils can achieve and how they behave.
Steps to take
In order for the secondary school to be rated as “Good” it must:
- strengthen the school’s work on improving behaviour and attitudes to learning, by developing pupils’ sense of responsibility and confidence as learners
- ensure that interventions designed to support current Year 11 pupils’ attainment and progress lead to improved outcomes in the 2019 examinations
- improve the consistency of teaching and learning in science
- insist that the sensible strategies to improve teaching and pupils’ behaviour are consistently followed and sustained by all staff
