Pupils return to school on Monday 6th September 2021

Ofsted Reports

Please find below our most recent Ofsted reports, and relevant information from the Department for Education Performance Tables.



According to our last OFSTED inspection in July 2018;

The School Continues to be Good because:

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection.


Since the last inspection, you have worked hard to ensure that leaders and staff focus their work on improving the outcomes for pupils. You have used innovative approaches to help support the challenges your pupils face. You are tireless in your resolve to ensure that every pupil who attends Haywood Grove has the skills needed for the next stage of their education.


Pupils try their best and are enthusiastic  to share their work with others. They are rightly proud of their achievements.


You have created a safe school in which pupils can thrive. Under your leadership, the pupils learn the skills they need to cooperate and build relationships with each other, staff and visitors.


Lessons are engaging, creating a dynamic learning environment. During the inspection, you could clearly show the deep thought and planning you put into each pupil's curriculum. Class sizes were varied, teaching styles were varied and the subjects being covered were extensive and well planned.


Leaders spoke with deep knowledge about what was being done to overcome and limit each pupil's barriers to learning.


Parents and pupils are aware of the work the school does to keep its pupils safe. Pupils are confident that staff look after them well. They say they feel safe and know how to seek help from staff when needed.


 Next Steps for the School:


Leaders and those responsible for governance should ensure that:

  • the high-quality learning environment that exists in some areas is extended throughout other parts of the school.
  • newly introduced assessment procedures are embedded further and are thoroughly evaluated to ensure that the quality of teaching, learning and assessment continues to rise.
  • governors share a full understanding of the procedures and processes being used within the school and their impact on pupil's outcomes.



We look forward to welcoming our new and returning pupils to school on Monday 6th September 2021
