Newbury's Park House School deemed 'inadequate' and 'requires improvement' after latest Ofsted inspection
Park House School in Newbury has been put into special measures after getting a poor Ofsted report.
In a letter to parents and sent to newburytoday, the 1,200 pupil school head said of the five areas inspected, three were deemed inadequate and two required improvement.
The 'requires improvement' marks went to personal development and the sixth form, with quality of education, behaviour and attitude, and leadership and management all deemed 'inadequate' by inspectors.
In the letter, the school and the Transform Learning Trust said they are "deeply disappointed" with the judgement.
“We know the judgement falls short of the expectations you and your young people have of Park House School,” wrote Damian Crabbe, the school’s principal.
“We are committed to doing everything we can to ensure we can again be proud to be part of the Park House community.”
Special measures means the school will be subject to monitoring visits to ensure improvements are made.
The school says a rapid action plan has now been put in place.
“We are confident that with this renewed focus, we can get the school back to its previous ‘good’ judgement quickly, and then perhaps beyond,” Mr Crabbe added.
The full report is still not available from Ofsted, but the school has offered parents the chance to give feedback on the report by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
