Greenwich House Independent School 
Ofsted Reports

School

On 16th,17th and 18th April 2024, Ofsted were inspecting Greenwich House School. The lead inspector spent Tuesday gathering information and then two inspectors spent the Wednesday asking about the school and viewing lessons, with the lead inspector also completing further activities with staff on  the Thursday before finalising his report. On Friday 10th May the report was released to us and will shortly be on the Ofsted website. Please click the link below if you would like to read the full report.

We were incredibly proud of all staff and pupils that were part of the inspection and who displayed the true ethos that Greenwich House works to on a daily basis. Some of the remarks are below

Greenwich Schoolis rooted in positive relationships. Pupils and staff work harmoniously. Pupils are proud of the small-school ethos. As one pupil said: ‘Weall know each other.We all get on.We’re like one big family.’

Pupils benefit from a wide range of sporting and creative activities beyond the curriculum. Golf, cross country and the opportunity to learn a wide range of musical instruments are highly valued. 

 

There is a strong pastoral care offer that promotes and supports pupils’ individual social, emotional and mental health needs.

Reading is prioritised. The school’s phonics programme is wellplanned and sequenced. It is taught consistently well. Pupils regularly practise and recap the sounds that they have learned before. The books that pupils read are closely matched to the sounds that they know. Over time, pupils become avid readers

Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND)are supported well. Their needs are comprehensively evaluated and catered for. The small-step targets that are set for these pupils, including those who have education,health and care plans(EHC plan),are skilfully designed. Support in lessons is well tailored. As a result, pupils with SEND go on to successfully learn the same curriculum as their peers.

Pupils, parents and carers and staff are highly positive about the school. One parent summed up the views of many when they said: ‘This is a fantastic school. Nothing is too much trouble. Staff go above and beyond to tailor education to each child’s needs and ability.’
