How do we evaluate ourselves?

In evaluating the school provision, we look at the following areas, which are also a focus for Ofsted, HMI and Hertfordshire Local Authority:

  • The Quality of Leadership
  • The Quality of Teaching and Learning
  • Children's Outcomes
  • Children's Welfare and Safety
  • Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural guidance

Within the areas above are key areas we robustly monitor and evaluate:
Child Protection and Safeguarding, Individuals' progress in learning and that of Vulnerable Groups, the effectiveness of teaching, the Quality of Work with our Partners, Finances and Value for Money, Health and Safety,

With rigorous systems of monitoring, evaluating and strong leadership, we are confident we exhibit outstanding practices across these areas and are stretching out to excel in other aspects of our provision.
