Ofsted Inspectors praise Sawston Village College

In November 2017, Ofsted carried out a short, one day inspection of the College and concluded that the leadership team ‘has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection’ and that the school ‘is very well positioned on the journey to become an outstanding school’.

Pupils were found to ‘behave very well and are proud of their school’ while the overwhelming majority of parents are highly positive about the quality of education, pupils’ progress and the range of skills they learn by the time they leave’. Furthermore, the letter from inspectors praised the wide range of opportunities, both in and outside of the classroom, open to pupils, in particular our provision in the arts.

Safeguarding and child protection are seen as strengths as is the quality of care and our approach to inclusion. At the same time, the report recognises that we are not complacent and that as a team of leaders and wider staff we are determined to drive further improvement and the next steps for the College identified by inspectors already feature in our development plans for the next two years.

We would like to extend our thanks to all parents and pupils who were involved in providing evidence for the inspection. The inspection letter can be read below.
