OFSTED & Studio@Deyes
As yet, Studio@Deyes has not been visited by OFSTED but we do have a Department for Education advisor working alongside us to ensure high standards.
However, our parent school, Deyes High School’s OFSTED report can be viewed here.
In addition, this is what inspectors said at some recent Ofsted inspections of Studio Schools:
- “Innovative strategies such as Project-Based Learning have been adopted with the aim of helping students develop the ability to solve problems and work well in teams. Such approaches have been effective in improving students’ employability and social skills.”
- “Students realise the importance of their learning, not simply in terms of examination grades but also in terms of the attitudes and skills they need for successful careers and lives.”
- “Students engage well in their learning. In lessons, they listen attentively, work hard and take pride in what they are doing. They particularly enjoy the practical parts of their studies involving specialist equipment and working with engineering experts. Students treat the high-quality facilities and resources with respect.”
- “Teachers effectively plan vocational work-based projects that provide students with a range of opportunities. For example, Year 9 students are involved in the design and construction of an outdoor facility for the local community, evaluating the needs of the community and the impact of their work. These projects and the opportunity to work alongside employers make a significant contribution to the development of students’ self-confidence and communication skills.”
