What Ofsted has said about the school
Ofsted March 2017
I am pleased to be able to now share with you the outcome and detail of last term’s Ofsted inspection. The inspection was carried out under section 5 of the Education Act 2005 by a team of 5 inspectors overseen by a senior HMI. The full inspection report can be found ‘here’ and will be published on the Ofsted website ‘here’ on the 2 May.
The inspection went very well and the school was judged to be ‘good’ across every area of the inspection. The inspection team recognised the significant improvements that have been made, particularly in the last 2 years following the previous inspection and that ‘Calder High School is improving rapidly’. This reflected the views of students who told inspectors ‘that they feel safe in school and fully recognise that it has improved substantially’. I would like to thank the parents that contacted the inspection team during the two days to share their thoughts and view that ‘Calder High is a brilliant school. My child does well and is happy’.
Our record-breaking results at GCSE, alongside our judgement of ‘good’, provides the perfect platform to focus on the future of Calder High School.
