bringing out the best in boys

Ofsted Reports

We are pleased to announce we have been awarded Ofsted “good school” status after our most recent inspection.   Our rapidly improving school was found to be GOOD in all of the judgement criteria  - Effectiveness of leadership and management, Quality of teaching, learning and assessment, Personal development, behaviour and welfare and Outcomes for pupils.

Principal Miss Melanie Wicks says “we are very pleased that Ofsted have agreed with our own assessments that Wellacre is indeed a good school. This result is a testament to all the efforts of staff and students, day in – day out, to further improve Wellacre. I recommend that people visit our website for the full report for  what is an overwhelming endorsement of Wellacre’s values of ‘honesty, pride, respect, aspiration and resilience’ .

Highlights of the report include:

  • Endorsements from Ofsted on parents views that the school is producing  “ well-rounded citizens that have the skills such as resilience, self-confidence and self-worth and empathy to prepare them for the next stage of their lives”

  • A resounding positive judgement on the behaviour of boys at the school and that boys “feel safe and are safe” at the school and that boys are free from bullying and that “The school is highly inclusive and welcoming.”

  • The vast majority of parents who responded to Parent View, the Ofsted online questionnaire, would recommend the school

  • The vast majority of pupils have good attitudes to learning. They are attentive and contribute enthusiastically in lessons.

Miss Wicks also said “it is very important that we remember that education is about educating the whole person and giving them the best skills and experiences to help then for the future. We anticipate that our results in 2017 will further endorse Ofsted’s view that we provide both good outcomes and good life skills”.
