As of Spring 2011 Emmanuel School was being run down with expectation of closure at the end of the summer term. However a new leadership was found, debts were paid off and school is now fully functioning and on a path of continual improvement. It was decided to leave the old inspection body and register under Ofsted who inspected at the begininnig of 2012. Because of the early inspection we were awarded a “Satisfactory” and those requirments placed on us in the inspection have now been met. (Actually most of them were done before the inspector left).
Below are a couple of points noted by the inspector:
- Provision for all pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is good. From the youngest age, pupils quickly adopt positive attitudes to learning and are encouraged to take responsibility. The school is a culturally inclusive, welcoming and friendly community where pupils show a strong awareness of the needs of others.
- Ongoing assessment of pupils’ progress through PACEs is detailed, accurate and includes regular opportunities for pupils to assess their own progress. Pupils apply themselves well to their PACEs work, setting themselves challenging personal goals, organising their morning learning and marking and correcting their work.
