‘Good’ rating for St Laurence School

First published in News

STANDARDS at St Laurence School have been classified as “good” by Ofsted, after a recent inspection of the Bradford on Avon school.

Inspectors observed 33 lesson and made shorts visits to extracurricular activities. The achievement of pupils, quality of teaching, behaviour and safety of pupils and leadership and management were all said to be “good”.

Headteacher Fergus Stew-art said: “We are very pleased with the outcomes of the recent inspection.

“Inspectors confirmed that we are already well on the way to becoming an outstanding school under the new framework.

“Inspectors also highlighted the inclusive nature of St Laurence, as seen, for example, in the growth in both numbers and achievement in the sixth form.

“Support from parents on Ofsted’s parent view website was very strong, reflecting the very effective partnerships we have.”

Ofsted commented on the broad and balanced range of learning opportunities and students’ positive attitudes to learning.

Inspectors advised that the school needed to improve the quality of teaching from good to outstanding so all students make faster progress.

They said the school was not yet outstanding, as it was still developing strategies to ensure a small minority who do not make consistent good progress achieved as well as their peers.
