Hertfordshire Annual Reviews
Every year we are reviewed by our Hertfordshire School Improvement Partner. Our last review took place in June 2018 and we were delighted for the fourth year running to be judged ‘Outstanding’ in all areas:
“The Headteacher has an aspirational vision for the school. The Headteacher, the SLT and the governors provide very strong leadership. The school’s highly creative and individualised curriculum is a strength. All teaching is at least good and much is outstanding. Planning and assessment are of very high quality. Pupils’ conduct is exemplary and their learning behaviours are excellent. Children in all cohorts, and children supported in the speech and language base, make strong progress across all curriculum areas. The effectiveness of EY provision is outstanding. Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is excellent. A strong culture of safeguarding permeates all aspects of the school’s work.”
Other Hertfordshire reviews
In May 2018 we commissioned a Safeguarding Check which was carried out by our Hertfordshire School Improvement Partner. This check reviews the school’s culture, systems and processes for keeping children safe. The review judged our school to be effective in all areas.
In June 2017 Hertfordshire County Council’s audit team conducted an audit to establish the school’s effectiveness of financial control, risk management and governance arrangements by assessing its effectiveness of controls in the assurance areas of the Governing Body and school staff, setting the budget, value for money and protecting public money. Based on the audit work performed, the team were able to provide overall substantial assurance that the school had effective processes in place to mitigate risks in the assurance areas covered by the audit.
In May 2016 Hertfordshire County Council’s Health and Safety Officer conducted a Health and Safety Management systems, policy and procedures review. The school’s final rating was ‘Outstanding’ and noted as being higher than the average compliance rating across Hertfordshire schools.
