High View was judged Good in three of the five areas that Ofsted inspect:

  • Effectiveness of leadership and management: "The new headteacher provides clear guidance to staff about the school’s ambition and expectations for teaching and pupils’ learning."And "Leaders and governors have established an ethos where pupils are expected to achieve their best in all aspects of their learning, behaviour and personal development.”

  • Personal development, behaviour and welfare: "The behaviour of pupils is good. Pupils are polite, well-mannered and welcoming.” And keeping children safe “is a strength of the school."

  • Early years provision: "The quality of teaching in the early years is good. This is due to clear planning that is well linked to each child’s learning needs. As a result, outcomes for children are high."

    The school Requires Improvement in relation to: Quality of teaching, learning and assessment: The school needs to "Improve the quality and consistency of teaching throughout Key Stages 1 and 2 by building on the good progress children make in the early years."

  • Outcomes for pupils: The school needs to "Improve progress in English and mathematics throughout the school."

    Ofsted recognised that the school has been trying new strategies to improve attendance. However, it is still currently lower than the national average. Children cannot reach their full potential unless they attend school regularly. Please continue to work with us to ensure your children attend school, and arrive punctually, every day. We would really welcome your ideas for what more we can do to improve attendance.
