About Us

February 2013 was one of the darkest moments for the school as the Ofsted report clearly showed. The school was almost graded inadequate and pupils were not achieving. The results in Key Stage 2 were below the floor standards the previous year and were predicted to be below again in 2013 when I joined the school. Since this point, Chiseldon has been on a progressive journey.

The first priority was to create an action plan based on the previous Ofsted report. As a Requires Improvement school, we had six weeks to achieve this. Our first priority was to improve the quality of teaching. All staff meetings were changed to effective CPD and what constituted good teaching. Clear expectations of standards of teaching, work and professionalism were put in place for all members of staff and some were sent on the Improving Teacher Programme.
