Ofsted

Panshanger School was inspected by two Ofsted inspectors in September 2012. The school received a very good report, with children’s behaviour and safety being identified as outstanding. The full report can be found on the OFSTED website (see link below) but some of the findings are set out below.

  • Pupils show immense kindness and consideration for one another and feel very well cared for because of the excellent relationships between adults and pupils.
  • Pupils’ exemplary behaviour in lessons and around the school contributes to the good progress they make in their learning.
  • Pupils get along very well and make sure that everyone has a chance to contribute in lessons and participate on the playground.
  • Teaching is mostly good and occasionally outstanding because teachers know the pupils exceptionally well and provide work which challenges most of them.                                               
  • In national tests, results have continued to rise and attainment at the end of Key Stage 2 is now above average because of the good progress pupils have made.                                                                                                       
  • Pupils are confident readers because they have good skills with which to tackle more demanding texts.                                                                                                                
  • Most pupils make at least good progress across all subjects because they enjoy learning and strive to do their very best work                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  
  • Disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs are supported by knowledgeable adults, and the additional support they get is well focused on their particular needs. As a result, these pupils make good progress. Other pupils help to support them well, and the caring ethos of the school means that pupils celebrate each other’s successes.

“The headteacher and senior leaders make sure that teachers know exactly how well each pupil is doing, and provide good support to improve teaching.”
