GABLE Hall School received an unexpected and unannounced Ofsted Inspection on the 12th January 2016. The inspection considered evidence including: observations of pupils’ behaviour and their attitudes to learning in lessons, observations of pupils’ behaviour throughout the day, including discussion with pupils, documentary evidence and discussions with academy leaders and staff.
The inspection found that “Leaders and managers have taken effective action to maintain the high standards of behaviour and attitudes identified at the academy’s previous inspection”. The previous inspection in September 2014, had judged the school to be Good (with Outstanding Safeguarding).
In response to a report which Dr Sophina Asong described as “a ringing endorsement of the professionalism of Gable Hall School’s staff and leaders, and a testament to what strong parental support and committed students can achieve together”, the inspection found that ‘staff turnover was well below the national average’ and that students ‘moved around in an orderly fashion’.
The Inspection saw" pupils socialising with each other well’ and ‘staff interacting positively with pupils’. ‘Pupils typically show respect for their academy environment.
There was no evidence of graffiti around the building, including in the pupils’ toilets”, the report added.
Dr Sophina Asong, Headteacher said “We are absolutely thrilled with this report. Gable Hall is a great school and we are very, very proud of the fact that the three Ofsted Inspections we have had since 2012 have all confirmed that fact…. We have an exceptionally harmonious community of staff, parents students and leaders here”.
