Gorse Ride Junior School - Monitoring Inspection (Feb 2020)

Gorse Ride Junior School underwent an Ofsted monitoring visit on 11th February 2020.  This was part of the inspection process whereby Ofsted conduct a one-day monitoring visit before the school's next full inspection to ascertain whether the school is making progress against the recommendations of our previous full inspection in September 2018.  In the report from Ofsted you can read in detail that the inspector concluded that leaders at all levels in the school were working effectively to achieve a “Good” judgement on our next inspection.  The Inspector has highlighted further work to tighten our analysis and processes to improve attendance for pupils who are falling below appropriate levels.  The inspector also commented that we should continue to embed and develop our already successful strategies and improvements with even greater urgency to ensure strong outcomes for all pupils.
