The school has improved considerably recently. We have worked really hard on refining Teaching and Learning and making sure that all students graduate from Batchwood School having achieved everything and more, than they would have achieved elsewhere. We are determined in our drive to make a difference and ensuring all students have the best outcomes to thrive outside of Batchwood School.
Ofsted have told us that our School and subject plans are purposeful and precise and accurately define what needs to be achieved. Teachers are setting challenging long term targets for students, and the Senior Leadership Team keep a close check on students’ progress towards them. There are systems in place to reward good behaviour and students enjoy the increasing amounts of freedom they are being given. School leaders and governors consultation with parents/carers and students are starting to inform decision making, for example in the setting of school uniform, and now, homework.
