Top marks for school

READING Blue Coat School in Sonning has received a faultless report following an inspection.

The Independent Schools Inspectorate report said the school met all standards and didn’t make a single recommendation for improvement.

It covered areas including the quality of education, the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils, the wealth, health and safety of pupils and the suitability of staff, premises, provision of information, handling of complaints and quality of leadership and management.

It said: “The teaching enables pupils to make good progress, encompasses effective behaviour management and is supported by suitable resources.

“Principles and values are actively promoted which facilitate the personal development of pupils as responsible, tolerant, law-abiding citizens.”

It also said that good behaviour is promoted, bullying is prevented so far as reasonably practicable and there is a strategic approach to risk assessment.

Headmaster Jesse Elzinga said: “From my perspective, the inspection could not have gone better. I am confident that the inspectors gained a full sense of this happy school where young people are flourishing.

“The inspectors may not have any recommendations for us, but I remain committed to making this school better every week for the benefit of all the delightful young people in our care.”
