Ofsted Inspection - February 2022
Westover Green School is extremely proud of the facilities, education and support that it is providing to the community of Bridgwater. We pride ourselves on being a 'school family' - supporting everyone so that they are able to reach their full potential and beyond.
We are delighted to say that we have been rated as 'GOOD' in our most recent inspection from Ofsted and look forward to continual improvements working alongside our Trust to aim higher in our next inspection.
Below are some of the key quotes from our most recent Ofsted inspection report
"Pupils are well cared for at Westover Green. They told inspectors that they could go to any member of staff if they were worried about something"
"The school pays careful attention to pupils’ wider development. Pupils value the opportunities they have to learn about all aspects of being healthy, including the recent focus on good mental health"
"Leaders have reviewed and improved all areas of the curriculum. These developments are particularly noticeable in the teaching of mathematics and reading"
"Teachers understand what pupils know and can do. Staff spot when pupils struggle with their work. They give pupils the extra practise they need in order to grasp important facts"
"Reading is given a high profile in the school. Pupils get the encouragement and support they need to develop an enthusiasm for reading"
"In the school, adults provide pupils with SEND with suitable support. These pupils have the same curriculum opportunities as their classmates"
"Pupils display highly positive attitudes to adults and each other. Right from Reception, teachers have clear, well-communicated expectations of learning behaviour. Pupils said that bullying is very rare"
"The arrangements for safeguarding are effective. There is a robust safeguarding culture in the school. Leaders have highly effective systems to identify risks and manage any concerns, which they use diligently"
