Ofsted visited The Rookeries in March 2019 and rated us ‘Requires Improvement'.

Some of their comments included:

"Newly appointed trust leaders have been instrumental in securing early improvements to the quality of teaching."

"Pupils' personal development, behaviour and welfare is a strength of the school. The vast majority of pupils are polite and have positive attitudes to learning."

"Leadership of the early years is strong, and teaching is effective. As a result, children make good progress."

"Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), including those with a hearing impairment, are well supported by adults and most make good progress."

"The appointment of new senior leaders within the trust has been instrumental in ensuring that improvements to the quality of teaching are now happening at a more rapid pace."
