Lyndon School was inspected by Ofsted on the 2nd and 3rd March 2022. This visit follows the last inspection for the academy in May 2018. After a thorough two-day review, I am delighted to inform you that Lyndon School’s overall effectiveness has now been judged to be ‘GOOD’ across all areas of the school inspection framework.  In brief:

 

 

  • The quality of education is now judged to be ‘Good’

  • Behaviour and attitudes is now judged to be ‘Good’

  • Personal development is now judged to be ‘Good’

  • Leadership and management continue to be ‘Good’

 

 

 

The inspection team reported that:

  • Lyndon School is a happy, friendly and caring place. Leaders are ambitious in their expectations. They want the very best for their school community.  Pupils enjoy positive relationships with caring staff.
  • The school is calm and orderly. Pupils are welcoming and respectful.
  • The school is well led. The principal’s clear and determined leadership has won the respect of the staff. The multi-academy trust (MAT) has supported the school well. It has provided effective support and challenge to further raise expectations.
  • Leaders have designed an ambitious curriculum. Pupils study a broad curriculum throughout key stage 3. They continue with a range of subjects at key stage 4. A strong emphasis is placed on those subjects that make up the English Baccalaureate (EBacc).
  • Teachers use assessment effectively to identify any gaps in pupils’ learning. They explain ideas well to pupils. Staff are knowledgeable and value the training that they receive.
  • Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) are supported successfully, and this ensures they are able to access the full curriculum. As a result, pupils with SEND make good progress. There is an effective programme of careers education.
  • Pupils feel safe in school. Leaders provide a wide-ranging programme that explains risky behaviours well to staff and pupils. Staff work well with other agencies that help to protect children when the need arises.

I feel that the findings of the inspection team are testament to the relentless efforts of everyone involved with Lyndon School.  This review now paves the way to securing nothing short of excellence at the point of our next inspection.  We are fully committed to working on the areas identified for development and our work in this regard has already begun. I look forward to sharing future developments with our families in the coming terms.   A copy of the full report is available via by clicking on the link below

Parent View

Parents and carers can give their views of our school at any time of the school year and at the time of a school inspection using an online questionnaire called Parent View.

Your views are important in helping us know what is going well and what could be improved, and if you would like to complete the questionnaire, please register with an email address and a password at https://parentview.ofsted.gov.uk. Once your login has been activated, it only takes a few minutes to complete the answers to short questions about aspects such as bullying, the quality of teaching, level of homework, etc.
