Redland Green School Rated Ofsted 'Outstanding'

We are delighted to announce that Redland Green School has been rated as an ‘Outstanding’ school by Ofsted in its recent inspection This is the first inspection since it became an academy in 2012 and shows the tremendous developments that have taken place since we opened ten years ago.

Ofsted inspectors visited the school for two days in May and found it to be ‘Outstanding’ overall and in all judgements. The report states “achievement across the school, including the sixth form is outstanding”. They were especially impressed by the personal development of the students and their preparation for the role they will play as responsible citizens in society.

In their report, inspectors said:

Headteacher Sarah Baker, whose leadership was described as “fundamental to sustaining the high levels of performance. Her vision, commitment and drive to achieve the very best education for each pupil within the school are commendable”, said:

"On behalf of the staff and students we are thrilled and very pleased with this report and the recognition it gives of the hard work that all members of the school community put in every day. This report reflects very positively on the personalised approach to each pupil’s growth and development and how this has a profound impact on students’ attainment and wellbeing and the commitment we make to this. Our ambition for every single student is at the centre of our vision and staff work consistently to reduce barriers, which may stand in the way of a student’s success."

The Ofsted report also noted that Governors “are aspirational for the future and have a full commitment to continually improving the quality of education for all pupils, specifically for those who are disadvantaged.”

Lawayne Jefferson, Chair of Governors, added “On behalf of the Governing Body, I would like to express how delighted we are at this outstanding Ofsted judgement. We provide a well-rounded education for the students who attend Redland Green School; spanning academic achievement, innovative curriculum development, inclusive non-academic activities, and an outward looking vision in an environment that speaks to equality, health and safety and strong leadership.”
