Headteacher Letter

 

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome our new parents/carers to Alderman White School, I trust your child is settling in well.

I would like to make you aware of some of the events that we will be running this year and remind you of day-to-day housekeeping pointers.

OFSTED Report

Rated Good In All AreasPlease find our latest Ofsted report attached below (not available on school app). As you will see from the report, the overall judgement was that we are providing a good standard of education for your children, and that all key aspects, namely Leadership, Teaching and Learning, Personal Development, Behaviour and Safety, and Outcomes for Pupils are good. It is very gratifying that the hard work and dedication of teachers, support staff, Governors and, of course, students is recognised in such a positive way. We are delighted that inspectors speak so positively about the progress we have made, and are continuing to make.

Inspectors have recognised much of the excellent work that takes place at the school. They are confident that our students make good progress across the curriculum, including Maths and English. The improvement in standards in Maths is picked out for particular mention, and this is typical across all subjects and for all groups of students – as they comment ‘all groups of pupils are making good progress from their different starting points, including the most able.’ Languages are highlighted for the exceptional progress that students make.

The quality of teaching is also recognised as a major strength, and something that we have worked very hard to improve to such high levels. Leadership at all levels is praised, including the leadership shown by Directors, as well as senior and middle leaders across the board. The wonderful extra-curricular opportunities that our students can access are also highlighted in the report.
