Ofsted Report

St Just is a ‘good’ school, March 2018


Ofsted’s report highlights:

· There is strong leadership and drive and determination to ensure that children leave the school well equipped for their next steps in learning.

· Staff morale is high, as demonstrated in the responses given to the staff questionnaire, where every respondent strongly agreed that they were proud to be a member of the school.

· Effective leadership, at all levels, has ensured that systems to improve the quality of teaching, behaviour and support for pupils have led to improving outcomes.

· Governors have a deep understanding of the school and they describe themselves as, ‘inquisitive, appreciative and supportive guardians’ of the school.

· Writing outcomes have improved significantly, with Year 6 pupils in 2016 and 2017 achieving progress scores that placed the school in the top 10% of schools nationally.

· There was clear evidence to show that teachers across the school are planning activities that challenge pupils at all levels.

· Leaders ensure that all safeguarding arrangements are fit for purpose and that effective action is taken to safeguard pupils.


Next steps for the school:

Leaders and those responsible for governance should ensure that:

· the percentages of key stage 1 pupils reaching the expected level and greater depth in mathematics are in line with or above national averages

· the attendance of pupils continues to improve.
