Following on from our Ofsted inspection in December of 2018, we had our first monitoring visit on the 22nd of October 2019. As this was an unannounced visit, the inspection team were able to see paradise primary school operate on the day of the inspection as the school operates on any other given day.
Alhamdulillah, the outcome of the report was overwhelmingly positive. As you will be aware, the quality of teaching and learning and assessment along with outcomes was judged as outstanding in the 2018 inspection. However, due to a safeguarding concern, the judgement for safeguarding along with leadership and management was not favourable.
Immediately after the first inspection a significant amount of work has been undertaken by senior leaders, staff and Governors. Alhamdulillah, not only were the works, but more importantly the direct impact of the works acknowledged as a major positive during the latest inspection. The safeguarding system that is in place is an extremely robust one, one which allows staff at every level to ensure the safeguarding of our children. Staff are more than adequately trained and further details can be found in the latest report.
During the last inspection in 2018 leadership and management received much deserved praise for a number of areas including their vision: “senior leaders, governors and trustees have a very clear vision for the future of the school, which is shared with staff.” Furthermore, during the most recent inspection, Alhamdulillah the quality of leadership and management was once again praised and safeguarding which was the only concern during the previous inspection was described as “meticulously” and “regularly” reviewed.
Ofsted coming in without any notice and leaving extremely happy shows the dedication, commitment and excellence of our staff and leaders. It also gives the Governing body great reassurance, that our staff and leaders do an exceptional job on a day to day basis and above all, our children receive the best care and opportunities both in their contemporary and Islamic education.
We would like to thank all parents for their continued support. Please find the full report attached.
Please keep the school in your duas.
