School Performance (GCSE Results, Ofsted etc.)

 

Meridian High School was inspected by Ofsted in April 2019. Inspectors recognised that we continue to improve in the right direction and left us with helpful foci to move us from ‘requiring improvement’ to ‘good’. In summary they recognised:

 

•        Pupils feel safe in school.

•        Pupils say that bullying is rare.

•        Pupils reflect upon and develop their respect for the views and beliefs of others. They say that the school is effective in encouraging respect so that everyone is treated equally. They acknowledge diversity as a strength of the school.

•        The arrangements for safeguarding are effective.

•        Leaders understand fully their duty to keep pupils safe and are thorough in this area of work.

•        Support for pupils’ emotional well-being is strong.

•        Pupils are given opportunities to develop their self-confidence through classroom discussions and through other activities.

•        Leaders use the additional funding for pupils with SEND effectively. Since September 2018, leaders have developed and improved provision.

•        Teaching is most effective in English. Teachers use their good subject knowledge and enthusiasm for the subject to engage pupils’ interest. Lessons are well planned and provide pupils with appropriate challenge.

•        Leaders have a strong understanding of the needs of pupils whose circumstances may make them vulnerable.

•        The school is generally orderly, and pupils are courteous towards each other and adults.

•        Despite the large school site, pupils are punctual to lessons.

•        Displays in classrooms are bright and purposeful and they are used to promote literacy. They help to create and promote an attractive working environment.

•        Leaders have identified and responded to the acute need for pupils to read frequently and widely. Reading is promoted around the school.

 

Additionally, Ofsted agreed that we should continue to focus on three important areas that we must do better in so that we can further improve:

 

•        Improving Leadership and Management

•        Improving the quality of teaching, learning and assessment

•        Improving pupil’s behaviour and attendance

 

You will find a full copy of the report in the link below. The report details all of the positive achievements of the school and also provides very helpful and full information about where we need to do better. Please rest assured that we remain focused on continued improvement.

With the support of parents and students, together we can continue to raise the bar of expectation for ourselves as to what each and every one of our students can achieve.

The Department of Education (DfE) publish secondary school results/tables every January. This link will take you to the latest data they published for our school.
