Ofsted

Please find below our most recent Ofsted reports, and relevant information from the Department for Education Performance Tables.

Some statements taken from the Report are below.

 

 

  • Teaching is outstanding because teachers have high expectations of what pupils can achieve.

  • Inspirational learning opportunities make pupils eager to learn and sustain their excellent progress and outstanding achievement throughout the school.

  • The behaviour of pupils in and around school is exemplary.

  • The school’s broad and inspiring curriculum is reinforced by a very wide range of clubs, visits and activities that creates enthusiastic and empowered learners.

  • In lessons, teachers constantly demand the highest standards, reflected in the pupils’ presentation of work in books, which is of very-high quality.

  • Pupils’ excellent progress throughout the school enables them to leave Year 6 attaining highly in all subjects, illustrated by the high numbers reaching Level 5 and, increasingly, Level 6.

  • Leadership and management are outstanding, with drive and vision that inspire all staff to seek excellence and show outstanding commitment.

  • The governing body is highly effective because it is closely involved in the life of the school and has a good understanding of the data on pupils’ progress to enable it to hold the school to account for its performance.

  • There is no discrimination in this harmonious, purposeful community.

 

Shirley Heath is leading the way in Solihull by being the first junior school to achieve ‘outstanding’ status twice.
