At Staplehurst School we are constantly seeking areas in which we can improve, and readily act upon our findings. All pupils’ academic progress is tracked using ‘Target Tracker’ software, and each pupil is monitored and discussed at termly pupil progress meetings.  Specific support is put in place where needs are identified. A range of interventions are deployed to support pupils’ academic and personal development. Some LAC and FSM pupils are part of wider support programmes, Pupil Premium is used to fund their participation in these programmes.

The school monitors and evaluates the impact of the Pupil Premium funded activities to ensure there are positive outcomes for the pupils receiving the payment. 

The Governing Body’s Learning & Development Committee review the impact data and discuss the most effective interventions with the Inclusion Manager.


The school’s last Ofsted inspection was in June 2015 and Staplehurst was judged to be a Good school. Please see the Ofsted report below, plus the report by the Governors on the visit.

KS2 SATs Results

A new national curriculum was introduced in 2014 and the 2016 SATs were the first to assess the children against this more challenging curriculum. The standard which the children are expected to reach by the end of Key Stage 2 was raised and, as a result, fewer children nationally met the expected standard. The reporting of results was also changed making the 2016 data incomparable with previous years. 2017 therefore provides us with the first year of data on which we can build a clearer picture of the school’s progress.
