Graded Good in All Areas
Broomhill Junior School's most recent inspection was in May 2017 and we were graded Good in all areas.
In particular, Ofsted noted –
Leaders, governors, staff and pupils throughout the school are committed to the core values of trust and respect that underpin the very strong relationships within the ‘Broomhill family’.
Disadvantaged pupils and those who have special educational needs and/or disabilities make the same good progress as others. They are supported by carefully tailored interventions.
Pupils are keen to learn because the school’s curriculum interests and enthuses them. They enjoy a wide range of experiences, including unique opportunities linked to the school’s own farm.
There is a strong sense of tolerance and understanding. Pupils say that they feel safe, valued and well cared for.
The Head Teacher drives a compelling and established ethos of the ‘Broomhill family’ that is at the heart of what the school does. This permeates all staff, who ‘go the extra mile’ in their commitment to care and give pupils positive experiences.
The quality of pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural education is a strength of the school. It is evident in pupils’ pride in their school and the special opportunities it gives them, their keenness to learn and how well they get on together.
The strong culture of safeguarding keeps pupils safe.
The behaviour of pupils is good. Pupils show courtesy and consideration towards each other and adults. They show curiosity and politeness to visitors in the school.
Pupils are positive about their learning and enjoy coming to school. They are very proud of their school, particularly their farm, the learning bus and their teachers.
The Head Teacher has a deep sense of care and aspiration for pupils. He is determined that pupils have positive learning experiences and the necessary skills to develop into mature young people.
