Ofsted (Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills) reports directly to Parliament and is both independent and impartial. It inspects and regulates services which care for children and young people, and those providing education and skills for learners of all ages.
The aim of its work is to promote improvement and value for money in the services it inspects and regulates, to the benefit of children and young people, parents and carers, adult learners and employers.
Millennium is an “Outstanding ” school
Summary of Key Findings:
- The highly effective and exceptional leadership and vision of the executive headteacher, head of school and governing body have brought about significant improvements in the quality of teaching, pupils’ achievement and their behaviour since the previous inspection so that these are now outstanding.
- Leaders at all levels are committed and passionate about teaching and learning. They have worked as a team to ensure that all pupils achieve their best, including those who have disabilities and special educational needs, and those who are disadvantaged or vulnerable.
- Teaching is never less than good and much is outstanding. Teachers motivate their pupils and enable them to make excellent progress by ensuring exciting and well structured learning opportunities, having consistently high expectations and providing good quality feedback.
- The curriculum is outstanding and is designed by the school’s leaders to ensure that pupils are inspired and enthused to develop a love of learning. As a result, pupils make exceptional individual progress. They demonstrate their skills collectively through collaborating in creative real life projects to celebrate their achievements across the school and in the local community.
- Pupils’ behaviour is exemplary and their thirst for learning is evident in all pupils do. They are highly motivated and keen learners who are proud of their school.
- Pupils feel very safe and are caring and considerate of each other’s different needs, showing kindness and concern for peers and adults alike as a matter of course. Their attendance at school is now broadly in line with the national average.
- Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is excellent. Pupils develop strong social skills from the start and are encouraged to articulate and exemplify the school’s key values, such as kindness, respect and resilience, so that they are exceptionally well prepared for life in modern Britain.
- Children in the early years make good progress as a result of the good teaching they receive, especially in the Nursery where they make outstanding progress from low starting points.
- In Reception, teachers and other adults do not always identify how children can further improve in their learning journals. Adults do not always ensure that they extend children’s vocabulary and skills at every opportunity.
