Brayton High School Rated GOOD by Ofsted
Students and staff at Brayton High School were thrilled to receive official confirmation from Ofsted that their school is Good overall. Achievement, Teaching and Learning, Behaviour and Safety and Leadership and Management were all judged as good following an inspection by Ofsted at the end of March.
The Ofsted inspectors visited the school for two days; they observed lessons, had meetings with students and staff and conducted a parent survey. The Ofsted report, which has been published this week, states:
“Brayton High School is a Good school. The achievement of students is Good and continues to improve. There is a relentless drive by school leaders to improve standards. There are good relationships between students and staff and there are Outstanding systems to keep students feeling very safe and secure. Students’ behaviour is Good and in lessons this supports their learning well.”
Mike Roper, Headteacher, said “It is great that Ofsted have recognised the transformation of the school over the past 3 years. The Governors and staff at the school are delighted that the Ofsted inspectors recognised the strength in the quality of teaching and learning at the school and that behaviour across the school is Good and students’ safety is Outstanding.”
He continued “3 years ago this school was judged inadequate. The dedication and hard work of the staff has resulted in a year on year improvement of standards and Ofsted recognises this will continue in the future. The Governors and Senior Leadership Team are already working to a School Improvement Plan that will move the school towards Outstanding.”
The Year 11 Prom was held at the Parsonage Hotel, Escrick on Thursday 3rd July, when students and staff shared an evening of celebration. Following a series of arrival photographs and socialising, there was a welcome drink in the conservatory, followed by a 3 course dinner and disco in the Crystal Suite.
Over the past 3 months the school have been conducting a review of the Brayton High School PE kit. As a result of the review, the Governing Body have agreed that there will be a new compulsory PE kit for all students in Years 7 to 10 from September 2014.
