Ofsted Report

We are delighted to let you know that our latest Ofsted report has been published. As you would expect, there are many delightful recognitions of the wonderful work at Woolwich Poly - Ofsted found that Behaviour is Outstanding, Leadership is Outstanding, Pastoral Care is Outstanding, The Sixth Form is Outstanding – we are very proud! Below are some quotations from the report which we hope will fill you with pride as they have ourselves:

There is an exceptional ethos of care across the school and pupils view the school as their family.”

“Behaviour around the school is exemplary. Pupils welcome visitors and the opportunity to demonstrate their pride in the school.”

“The pupils are an absolute credit to the school.”

“The school’s work to promote pupils’ personal development and welfare is outstanding. Pupils are very articulate, unfailingly polite and confident with adults.”

“There is an exceptionally good system of pastoral support for pupils.”

“Teachers use their good subject knowledge to plan exciting lessons which motivate and inspire their pupils.”

“The sixth form is outstanding because students’ outcomes are very strong and the quality of teaching is consistently high.”

“Outcomes and progress for students in the sixth form are outstanding

“In GCSE examinations in 2017 and 2018, Year 11 pupils achieved grades which were above the national averages.”

“Leaders and teachers work relentlessly to provide exceptional support for the personal development of their pupils.”

“Pupils are highly ambitious, because of this culture set by leaders.”

“The leadership of pupils’ personal development and welfare is a remarkable strength in the school.”

“Governors are a real strength of the school. They are conscientious and constantly strive to improve their effectiveness in supporting and challenging leaders.”

“Leaders are trained effectively in safeguarding. There is a very strong culture across the school, where staff are very well informed about local risks and are vigilant in helping pupils to avoid these risks.”

Relationships are strong between teachers and pupils. Pupils enjoy their learning and are keen to do well in all their subjects.”

We would like to thank everyone for the tremendous efforts in making The Poly Family such a special community. There are, of course, areas where we know we can improve and our efforts to make the school even better will never stop!

Thank you for your continued support as we move into an exciting new era where Woolwich Poly Boys and Woolwich Poly Girls will be working closely together to bring excellence to all children in the community. Both schools are oversubscribed for September 2019 and we are so grateful that our popularity in the local community is stronger than ever.
