“By the end of Year 11 students make outstanding progress in relation to their starting points, including in their key skills. They achieve exceptionally well as a result of high quality teaching and the outstanding teamwork of all adults who work with them” – Ofsted Report February 2014
Our committed, bespoke, holistic approach to education, within a caring, spiritual environment, affords young people the very best opportunity to achieve their maximum potential and lead fulfilled happy lives.
Clear, outcome referenced, assessment-based measurements enable us to demonstrate that we make a positive difference to the personal, social and learning lives of each young person in our care – exemplified by two successive ‘Outstanding’ ratings by Ofsted.
“Students from Year 9 onwards are challenged successfully to gain a wide range of nationally accredited qualifications. The students thrive within the caring ethos of the school. All of them make excellent progress in their personal development. This helps those with behavioural and emotional problems over many of the barriers to their learning. It underpins their excellent attitudes to learning and helps them to achieve their full potential. Other students with autism or speech and language difficulties make huge gains in their confidence and willingness to attempt challenging learning activities”. Ofsted Latest Report January 2009
We use a range of performance data, including examination results, to provide us with a picture of performance and achievement for each individual. This helps us to set targets for future improvement.
Pield Heath House School adheres to the ‘Every Child Matters’ outcomes framework to provide us with a shared framework for planning and evaluating progress and as a benchmark for measuring our performance against national targets.
