Cressex Community School celebrates 'good' Ofsted ranking

First published in News by

CRESSEX Community School has been celebrating after Ofsted ranked it as a ‘good’ school after its latest inspection – with an ‘outstanding’ sixth form.

The report, from an inspection earlier this month, recognised that the school leaders have established a strong climate for learning, which has led to improvements in the quality of teaching and examination results for students.

Headteacher David Hood said: “Staff, students, parents and everybody in the Cressex school community have worked incredibly hard to make the improvements that Ofsted have recognised. They all deserve huge congratulations. It is especially pleasing that we are seen to be a harmonious place where people of many different backgrounds learn and achieve together.”

The school said the improvement in students’ achievements is the result of the school’s determination to strengthen its learning and teaching. Teachers at Cressex have high expectations and are ambitious for students’ achievement.

The inspection also recognised that students work hard and behave well. Ofsted noted the strength of relationships between staff and students and the positive impact this had on students’ learning and behaviour. The school said it is now ambitious to build on its strengths on its journey towards being an ‘outstanding’ school.

The the person/persons voting negatively. Get a life mate, not all glasses are half empty, only yours!
Enlighten yourself, go visit the school. no excuse needed, just say i want to see your school please.
THEN, if in your educated judgement the school is a 'netative', i will respect your opinion.
Otherwise stop, before i give you a weeks detention> Kapish Boy!

So, I can only assume that comments are censored. What's the matter? Can't take criticism? The majority of comments thus far are positive, An inclusive stance would be to allow everyone to have a say. Is that not the point of the comments section? Ask Mr Hood what his previous job was!
Not diffcult to get a "Good"! In fact, I'm bitterly dissapointed that they didn't get "outstanding".

Horatio,
Apologies if i come over as censorious and yes inclusive is good. Just supporting this school. i Googled its history, the journey to Good is pretty impressive.
Especially since recent gradings of Secondary Moderns in Bucks has been VERY bad. Previously solid schools like Holmer Green, Wye, Highcrest, Misbourne, have all got Requires Improvement or Special Measures.
Mr Hoods previous job. Again google tells me what it is, but what is the point - surely, you are not implying he has special Jedi mind powers over Ofsted Inspectors? Impressed i am, if he does.
