Rutherford House School welcomed OfSTED into the school in April 2019 for a short inspection, monitoring standards since the Good inspection report in July 2015.
The report shows very positive improvement for a school that has grown when last inspected from 4 classes (in July 2015) to 12 classes of pupils up to the eldest pupils currently in Year 5. Over the period, the inspector judged that the ‘the school has improved significantly overall’.
As an ‘oasis of calm’, the school is judged to be providing high standards through an ‘ambitious curriculum’ for their pupils, ‘where pupils are keen to find out new things and share their views and ideas. They learn very happily together.’
We are delighted with the report that is a very good representation of the school. The report is an absolute credit to Head Teacher, Mrs Mallatt and the staff, Local Advisers, parents and most importantly, the pupils at Rutherford House School.
A copy of the report can be found here, on the OfSTED website
OfSTED usually visits Good Schools with short inspections to monitor standards. The inspector did report that the next OfSTED visit will be a full (section 5) inspection in the next one to two years, or early if requested.
