Ofsted Report

Church Stretton School is graded ‘Good’ by Ofsted.

In the most recent inspection report, Inspectors noted the following:

  • Your mission of ‘achievement for all’ permeates the way staff work, and all pupils are well known, cared for and challenged to succeed.
  • Pupils have a good understanding of how to keep themselves and their peers safe. Pupils told inspectors that they feel safe. Pupils are confident that, should they speak to a member of staff, they will be taken seriously and the issue will be dealt with.
  • The proportion of pupils who achieved the English Baccalaureate at the end of Key Stage 4 in 2015 compares favourably with all pupils nationally.
  • The proportion of most-able pupils achieving at least five good GCSE grades, including English and mathematics, in 2015 was higher than the national average.
  • The most-able pupils in the school achieved GCSE grades in excess of similar pupils nationally in a range of subjects.
  • In 2015, just over two thirds of pupils at the end of Key Stage 4 had made at least the progress that they should in English and mathematics as a result of consistently good teaching.
  • Leaders have taken effective action to narrow the gap between the achievement of pupils who are disadvantaged and other pupils in the school and nationally.
  • Teachers use questioning successfully in lessons to develop pupils’ understanding. Teachers think carefully about how to pitch their questions so that pupils are made to think hard and use what they know.
  • Teachers provide valuable written feedback and specific guidance that helps pupils to improve their work.
  • Attendance is high for most pupils.
  • Behaviour in lessons and around the school site is excellent.
