Staplehurst School

Ofsted Report

Ofsted visit January 2022: Following our recent inspection in January our school has been judged to be a good school in all areas.

"Staplehurst School is a friendly place. Leaders have successfully brought about much-needed change. They have raised standards and expectations in all areas. Leaders, governors and staff are ambitious for pupils, including for those who are disadvantaged, in minority groups or who have special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND)."
"The school’s values of positivity, respect, independence, determination and excellence (PRIDE) are seamlessly woven into everyday life. Pupils understand these, showing politeness and respect to each other and to adults. They say that everyone is treated equally and that ‘no one is judged."
"Pupils feel safe and adults look after them with much care. Pupils understand the rules, and typically follow these well. Should it be necessary, adults are quick to help pupils understand the consequences of any poor behaviour. As a result, bullying is rare.

"Parents and carers recognise the many improvements. One parent, summing up the views of many, commented that, ‘under the new leadership team, the school has strengthened significantly. Expectations are high and the curriculum is varied. Staff are approachable and provide children with a range of learning opportunities."
