Green Meadow’s last full inspection was on 25th November 2019. Since this inspection, the school has had two interim monitoring visits, one to judge the provision of learning during lockdown and a further remote inspection on 30th March 2021 where we were able to welcome Ofsted into school.
The following points were noted in our interim visit on 30th March 2021.
Leaders and those responsible for governance are taking effective action in order for the school to become a good school.
The inspection team found many positive features during the visit to school, including the following:
- The members of the new leadership team, under the clear steer of the head of school, have worked hard to improve the quality of education for all pupils. They have taken appropriate action to address the areas identified in the previous section 5 report.
- Leaders have a sharp focus on school improvement and know what actions are needed.
- Leaders have prioritised curriculum development and established a broad and balanced curriculum. All subjects are now offered, and curriculum planning is structured and well-sequenced. As a result, pupils are beginning to build their skills and knowledge in order to meet national curriculum expectations.
- Subject leaders are enthusiastic and committed to raising standards. Training provided by the trust and senior leaders has enabled subject leaders to develop their leadership skills.
- Reading is a key priority for the school and is given appropriate weighting in school improvement planning. Phonics teaching is well established, and pupils have a good grasp of how to decode and blend words. All staff have received phonics training so are able to support weaker readers in their classes.
- The profile and time given to art, design technology and modern foreign languages has increased significantly. Pupils talk about these subjects, and say they enjoy learning new skills and vocabulary. Leaders have made significant progress in improving the personal, social and health education (PSHE) programme. This is now a strength of the school.
