Beechview was last inspected in June 2019. We are currently rated as Requires Improvement. The inspectors recognised how far the school has come in the past few years, and noted the following strengths.
Staff provide a high quality of care for pupils. They know their pupils well and they ensure they are safe in the school.
Enrichment activities provide pupils with opportunities to excel in some subjects, including art, music and sports. Specialist teachers from the trust provide additional support to the school.
The executive headteacher provides a clear direction to the school. He has already brought stability to the school, following a period of turbulence.
Governors provide a good balance of support and professional challenge to school leaders.
Pupils’ outcomes in reading and mathematics are improving. A higher percentage of pupils are now on track to reach the standards expected for their age.
We know that we have much still to do, but we are very proud of the progress we have made and we are confidently planning for our next inspection! If you would like to read the full report, or reports from the past ten years, please see below.
