In April 2016, the school welcomed a new headteacher- Marion West.
Mrs West, along with the team at Warninglid, are working incredibly hard to address all of the key issues raised by Ofsted in 2015 and ensure that the provision at Warninglid is nothing less than good. In addition to the change of headteacher, the governing body has seen big changes and they too are working very hard to improve the school.
In the last six months the school has made considerable progress towards strengthening the school in the following ways:
Staff training has focused on developing high expectations, challenge, improved questioning and assessment for learning. This is having a marked effect on the quality of teaching and learning.
Through the development of our school vision and the identification of key values, our children are developing important skills for learning such as resilience, perseverance, independence and team work.
Children are much more motivated and are happy learners, who are now more prepared to engage in challenging activities.
Enjoyment of school has been raised by the implementation of initiatives such as Forest Schools and the further development of the curriculum to make it more engaging.
Pupil involvement has been revived through the introduction of a Peer Mentoring scheme, an active school and eco-council and digital leaders.
Parents and volunteers are actively involved and support the school in a variety of different ways.
To address HMI and Ofsted Concerns
Progress of pupils is monitored through the implementation of a new data tracking system – this information is shared and understood by all school leaders,
All school leaders are involved with monitoring teaching and learning which has helped to raise standards.
Through the use of assessment for learning strategies, all teachers including early years, use assessment information to plan learning, track progress and identify gaps.
in Early Years baseline assessment is carried out in the Autumn term and the information used to plan future learning opportunities.
Governors have reviewed their practice through taking part in a comprehensive Review of Governance and have strengthened their role in the school and are now stringently holding leaders to account.
All staff have received up to date safeguarding training and a new robust policy is in place.
There are sound procedures in place for dealing with safeguarding concerns.
