ISI Inspection Report
Following a visit by representatives of the Independent Schools Inspectorate on the 24 and 25 January to conduct a Regulatory Compliance only inspection, Claires Court has fully met all the required standards.
This important inspection confirms that the School is compliant with all of the specified regulations and associated legal requirements set against a set of eight standards. In this particular inspection schools either meet or do not meet the requirements.
During their visit which covered all three sites, inspectors observed lessons, conducted formal interviews with pupils, examined samples of pupils’ work and analysed responses from parent and pupil questionnaires. They held discussions with teaching staff and observed a sample of extra-curricular activities, as well as met with school leaders to check on the school’s management of welfare, health and safety, staff recruitment, the handling of complaints, as well as information and reports provided for parents and guardians.
The report noted the quality of teaching enables pupils to make good progress and recognised that the School’s values are actively promoted and facilitate the personal development of pupils as responsible and tolerant citizens. The School expects the next education quality with compliance inspection to take place in 2021.
“Firstly, I thank all our hard working staff whose efforts ensured such a successful outcome. And thanks too to those very many parents and pupils who took the time to complete the mandatory questionnaires and additional comments to assist the inspectors in their visit.”
