Just had a quick look againThe Ofsted report makes it clear that kids of all abilities (who I feel really sorry for) are being completely failed by the governors, leaders and teachers of Monkwearmouth. Surely kids need proper competent teaching to at least be able to find their level? It would seem they don't have that and therefore they are at a disadvantage from the off.
first the plus points (copy paste) in summary
Recent improvements in staff professional development are beginning to bear fruit; some teaching is improving. Provision for pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is good.
Safeguarding is effective. Pupils are taught how to keep themselves safe. Pupils say they feel safe at school.
The failings really come from the top ,and the tiers below as in no one really monitored those directly below and that has had an effect on pupils .That's not to say nothing was taught,learnt and achieved so its thinks its fair to not write the whole place off . Its fair to say ofsted isn't really motivated by spiritual,moral,social, and cultural development of our kids ,neither is this world we live in really .
