What did Ofsted say about us?

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. Parents, staff and pupils praise all aspects of the school.  

At the hospital site staff are skilled in very quickly assessing pupils' needs.  Staff provide work that is age appropriate and takes account of children's interests.  The work is purposeful and interesting.  It is well resourced and takes place in a calm and relaxed atmosphere.

At the early years assessment centre, teaching is very well planned to meet children's learning needs to develope early reading, writing and numeracy skills, and is linked effectively to children's health needs.

At the Wrenthorpe site, teachers make learning interesting and check pupils' understanding before they are moved on.  This is helping pupils to re-engage in learning.

Children and young people told us they feel listened to and supported with their learning, and are increasingly confident to take their next steps when they leave Pinderfields.
