Short inspection of Stepgates Community School


Below is an excerpt from the report from the Ofsted Inspector:

Following my visit to the school on 29 November 2017, I write on behalf of Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Education, Children’s Services and Skills to report the inspection findings. The visit was the first short inspection carried out since the school was judged to be good in November 2012.

This school continues to be good.

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection and pupils continue to make good progress. It was a real pleasure to meet you, your staff and pupils. Throughout the school and in the specialist centre, pupils are very willing and confident to talk about their learning. They said they especially appreciate the support teachers provide to help them improve, and that ‘teachers make learning fun’.

Many changes to leadership and staffing have taken place since the previous inspection. These include several appointments to senior leadership roles, one of which was your own. This has strengthened leadership at the school. Leaders are now much more accountable for the areas that they oversee. You have made sure that your team works together effectively to support the school’s continuing improvement.
