Kingdown pleased with first academy Ofsted report
Kingdown School is continuing to make “prompt progress on its journey to excellence”, according to its latest Ofsted report, which rated the overall effectiveness of the school as “good”.
The inspection was the first since the Warminster school became an academy in August 2011 and rated the achievement of pupils, quality of teaching, behaviour and safety of pupils and leadership and management as “good”.
Ofsted inspectors, who visited the school in July under the new no-notice scheme, found that the “progress in English across the school is outstanding” and teaching is “usually good or better”.
However, the report did find the “proportion of outstanding teaching is not yet high enough” and there are “insufficient numbers of students who are making outstanding progress in their lessons”.
Headteacher Sara Edwards said: “I am very proud of the report and the fact that during the two-day inspection, under a much tougher framework, we were borderline Outstanding/Good for both days, unfortunately just missing Outstanding.
“However, this summer’s excellent results reflect our “prompt progress to excellence” and we will continue to do the very best we can for every child at Kingdown.
“As the report reflects, Kingdown is a great school with much to be proud of and I feel very privileged to lead this wonderful school.”
