Woodside Middle School's Monitoring Visit Finds...

Monday 6th December 2010

 

Her Majesty’s Inspector of Education, Children’s Services and Skills (HMI) has completed a second monitoring visit to Woodside Middle School since the school was placed in special measures in November 2009.

 

The inspection found that since the start of the new school year pupils’ progress at Key Stage 2 had accelerated, under the outstanding leadership of the Executive Head teacher Gill Peck, and the stronger teaching, more positive climate for learning and high expectations that she has embedded in the school.

 

There had been good progress in English, mathematics and science by the pupils now attending the Mark Rutherford site.

 

Absence across both sites has fallen and improvements in behaviour are notable.

 

The Local Authority has supported the school well and done everything to ensure that arrangements for the split-site provision have been completed quickly.

 

Executive Head teacher, Gill Peck, said: “I am extremely pleased with the report.  It accurately reflects the excellent progress the children have made this year.  We are looking forward to further progress during the course of the year”.
