Haslingden High School downgraded to 'good' in Ofsted inspection

First published in News

HASLINGDEN High School’s performance has been downgraded by the government schools’ watchdog, Ofsted.

The school was previously deemed ‘outstanding’ by the body following inspections in 2007 and 2011, but has been moved to the lower category of ‘good’ after an inspection last December.

Lead inspector Gary Kelly said in a report: “Overall, students make good progress. The standards they attain in English, mathematics and a range of other subjects are above the national averages.”

Mr Kelly also praised the headteacher and senior leaders as having a ‘clear plan for success’.

However, inspectors found some areas the school could improve on, including teaching.

Mr Kelly said: “Not enough teaching is consistently first rate and there is still a small proportion that requires improvement.

“In these lessons, there is insufficient challenge for some students, including the most able.

“Teachers’ marking, assessment and feedback to students in their books are not consistently good across all subjects.”
