Agenda item


Reports for noting.


Sue Talbot, Senior Manager, gave an overview of Ofsted inspections since May 2014 and responded to members questions. 36 inspections had been carried out since last year and 87% of primary schools and 64% of secondary schools were graded at good or better. Several schools were in the process of conversion to Academy status and Members were informed that if a school was in special Measures it would lose its category once it became an Academy and the school would be inspected after 12 months.  Members expressed concern about this situation however Julia Hassall, Director of Children's Services, emphasised the strong relationship between schools and CYPD and it was noted that the authority had a statutory duty to imput an improvement plan. Sue Talbot also commented that the Attainment Sub Committee would be kept updated. Members were provided with a pack of published results relating to Brentwood Nursery School, Bidston Village CE (Controlled) Primary School, Cathcart Street Primary School, Grove St Primary School, The Priory Parish CofE Primary School, St Anne’s Catholic Primary School, St John’s Catholic Junior School, SS Peter and Paul Catholic Primary School, Bebington High Sports College together with details of monitoring inspection visits relating to Hilbre High School Humanities College, Emslie Morgan Alternative Provision School (Wirral Alternative School Provision) and Pensby High School for Boys.


Resolved – That the report be noted.
