The report on the recent two-day inspection of Godshill Primary & Griffins was published this morning. It states that the overall effectiveness of the school has fallen from “good” to “requires improvement”.
Two categories, “personal development, behaviour and welfare” and “early years provision” are classified as good. The other categores of “effectiveness of leadership and management”, “quality of teaching, learning and assessment” and “outcome for pupils” have all dropped too requiring improvement.
The school has been through a period of turbulence recently and is currently without one of its executive headteachers although the local authority is providing support.
The report does highlight a number of strengths:
- Pupils’ behaviour in lessons and around the school is good. Pupils demonstrate positive attitudes to learning and feel safe in school.
- Leadership of the early years is strong. Children in the early years make good progress and are well prepared for Year 1.
- Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is good. Pupils’ pastoral needs are well met.
- Additional funding is used well. Leaders ensure that pupils who are disadvantaged or who have special educational needs and/or disabilities are supported well and make good progress.
