Culcheth High School recently hosted a visit from a team of five OFSTED Inspectors in May 2014. The inspection was carried out over two days and involved a rigorous scrutiny of the school’s quality of provision.
As Headteacher I am delighted to report that Culcheth High School has been judged to be a good school in all areas:
Overall Effectiveness – Good
Achievement – Good
Quality of Teaching – Good
Behaviour and Safety of Students – Good
Leadership and Management – Good
It is worth noting that OFSTED have significantly raised their expectations and requirements on all schools nationally to demonstrate higher standards than in previous years’ inspections.
Culcheth High School has done exactly that.
I have no doubt that the commitment, dedication and sheer hard work of staff, students, parents, governors and wider community partners have culminated in a very positive report, an endorsement of the school over time that I think we can all be very proud of.
The OFSTED team have given very clear areas for Culcheth High School to improve upon to achieve an outstanding judgement in time.
It is my very strong belief that the Culcheth community deserve to have an outstanding school at the heart of our locality. At Culcheth High School we do not intend to rest on our laurels but rather to engage and work towards a vision of outstanding school status.
May I thank you all for your commitment to the school’s success and invite you to engage with us on the journey to outstanding provision for all our fantastic young people.
