Ofsted Report

17 January 2017

”The Wavell School – “principled and aspirational leadership embeds a culture of strong pastoral care and high academic standards” (Ofsted January 2017)

The headteacher, Amanda Rowley, was delighted with the new Ofsted report maintaining the School’s status as Good. “Thank you to all our parents for their overwhelming positive support”. Here is an extract: “The school’s ‘care to challenge’ motto encapsulates appropriately the day-to-day work of your school community. Wavell is a harmonious school where everyone pulls together to do their best. A recent visitor described coming to your school as like joining ‘a large family’. You have high expectations, and take decisions based on what is right for your pupils and the community. This is a very inclusive school, where each pupil’s progress and personal development really matters. Pupils make good progress across the curriculum, as a result of good teaching and support. They are appropriately challenged and want to do well. Pupils of all abilities participate well in focused and purposeful lessons. Safeguarding and pastoral care are the foundation of this school. Pupils feel safe and strongly value the support they receive. Leaders and key staff are highly skilled and effective and you continue to provide exceptional support for the school’s military children and their families.”
