Ofsted Report

You may be aware that on Tuesday, 21st March, we had a monitoring inspection carried out by HMI (Her Majesty’s Inspector).  A report will be issued on Monday 10th April and will be accessible via the Ofsted website https://reports.ofsted.gov.uk (please enter ‘Greystone Ripon’ into the search facility).

Recently there have been many positive changes at Greystone; resulting in improved teaching and learning and behaviour and welfare, across the school.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank you, our Parents and Carers, for your continued support and hard work since September.  Greystone is now officially moving towards a ‘good’ judgement.

A few comments:-

  • Senior leaders and governors are taking effective action in order to become a good school.
  • New systems for improving all aspects of the school have been strengthened.
  • Behaviour strategies and approaches to teaching, learning and assessment are being applied consistently.
  • Pupils were keen to talk about how their school is changing.
  • Proactive and restorative approaches are securing sustainable change in pupils’ behaviour.
  • You (Miss Kirkman) and your staff team have improved how you support pupils and their families facing difficult circumstances.

Evaluation of the effectiveness of teaching is accurate.  As a result of improving teaching, an increasing proportion of pupils are making better progress than in 2016
