The Forest School has been rated Good by Ofsted

A WINNERSH school is celebrating its latest Ofsted report.

The Forest School, on Robin Hood Lane, has been rated good in all areas, following an inspection in July.

It comes after a number of years marked as requiring improvement.

Headteacher, Shirley Austin, said she is proud of the school’s journey over the past four years since she began leading the institution.

“Our families have engaged with my vision and been fantastic,” she said.

“Those families deserve this recognition alongside the staff who have worked with me.

“I have firmly believed that we have been an excellent school for some time; with exceptional teaching and learning options, superb student facilities and a committed, professional body of staff who engage and challenge students.

“I am delighted that Ofsted visited us to validate what we believed. “

The inspectors congratulated staff ambitions for pupils and said lessons are routinely calm and purposeful.

“Pupils at The Forest School understand that learning is important,” they said. “They apply themselves to their work, showing great tenacity.”

School governor, Cllr Prue Bray, said it was great for the school to be recognised as good.

“After a really difficult time during the pandemic, the head, staff, students and governors have really got something to celebrate,” she said.

“A lot of hard work has gone into improving the school, and we are determined not to rest on our laurels.

“We all want the school to be the best it can possibly be, not just delivering excellent education for every pupil but also making sure they are happy and enjoying school.”
