Whole College impact

A new calendar of assessment and monitoring has been put into place with challenging flight paths and targets.  Barriers to learning are identified for each individual underachieving student and interventions are being put into place to overcome these barriers and support students in their progress.  This is being led by the progress manager in each year group.

Enrichment has included activities that have focused on safety and online safety, drug awareness, equality and diversity.

Standards of teaching and learning continue to improve.  Inspectors found examples of strong teaching practice across all year groups; teachers were observed using questioning highly effectively to probe students’ understanding (Ofsted 2015).  A new CPD programme to further develop teaching and learning was introduced for 2015/16 and this has been further developed to support departments to raise standards in marking and assessment for 2016/7.

Internal records show that standards of behaviour have improved with a reduction being seen in the number of duty calls and the excellent standards in uniform continues to be evident across the college.

The use of the Inclusion room has continued to support the reduction of fixed term exclusions and there have been no permanent exclusions in over 10 years.

Student Services and the support staff who work there make a significant difference to the well-being of our pupil premium students who can access support at any time during the day.  External support agencies based here also deliver effective intervention.
