OFSTED RATED GOOD, October 2023
In October 2022, Ofsted inspectors judged MPS to be a GOOD school, grading it as 'good' in all areas; Quality of Education, Behaviour and Attitudes, Personal Development and Leadership and Management.
Inspectors were blown away by the levels of parental positivity on the survey and the lovely individual positive comments that were included by so many. Some of these comments are included in the report.
Below are some of the comments from the report that we are particularly proud of:
Leaders have created a school where learning and success are a top priority. They ignite pupils’ passion for learning and are determined to make a difference to their life chances.
The values of being inclusive, collaborative, resilient, respectful and successful are evident in the ethos of the school.
Leaders have created a culture where the well-being and safety of pupils are at the heart of the school’s work. Bullying is not tolerated. Pupils behave well and respect each other. They are happy and proud of their school.
Staff have high expectations for pupils’ behaviour. Strong pastoral support balances rewards with sanctions and consequences that are known and understood by pupils.
Parents are overwhelmingly complimentary of the school, its leadership, the education and the way in which pupils’ confidence and passion for learning are developed.
The curriculum is ambitious, broad and balanced. It includes extensive extra-curricular opportunities, enabling pupils to attend subject-specific classes or pursue a wider range of interests.
The importance of reading is seen as a priority.
Staff are proud and enjoy working at the school and contribute fully to the vision that has been set by leaders. They appreciate that leaders are mindful of their well-being and workload.
We are delighted with the result of this inspection and the really positive comments that can be found in the report. If you would like to read the full report, please click here.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our hard working and dedicated staff for their efforts, not just during the inspection but for their constant commitment to MPS.
Many thanks as well to our parents and carers for your continued support in our drive to ensure MPS provides the best possible education for your children.
