Wavell Continues to be a 'Good School'


“Being a pupil at Wavell means you are part of a community where everyone looks out for each other” (Ofsted November 2021)

The Headteacher, Amanda Rowley, is delighted to share the Ofsted Report  which maintains the School’s status as a Good School. Here are a few extracts:

  • Pupils have a strong understanding of and respect for equality and diversity….. Pupils know that bullying is wrong, and that their teachers will take swift action when this is reported.
  • Teachers have high expectations for what the pupils will achieve academically. This is coupled with a determination that pupils have the skills they need to be successful when they leave school.
  • Leaders are driven by a determination to meet the needs of every pupil. The school’s ethos, ‘We care to challenge’, embodies this approach. Staff combine their support to help every pupil achieve academically with kindness and care.
  • Leaders have prioritised the importance of reading…
  • Highly trained staff accurately identify the needs of pupils who may find reading more difficult.
  • The personal development offer is a strength of the school…
  • The well-considered personal, social and health education (PSHE) curriculum is regularly adapted to develop pupils’ knowledge and support their well-being. The careers guidance helps to raise pupils’ aspirations for when they leave the school.
  • Lessons are calm and focused. Pupils know what is expected of them and are clear on the actions staff will take if the school rules are broken.
  • The arrangements for safeguarding are effective.
  • Leaders provide regular, detailed and up-to-date training for staff on potential risks to pupils’ safety and well-being.
