JCoSS scores well with Of­sted’s in­spec­tors

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY - BY CHAR­LOTTE OLIVER

JCOSS HAS been rated “good” with out­stand­ing fea­tures in its lat­est Of­sted in­spec­tion.

The East Bar­net school was given a rat­ing of two — the same re­sult it re­ceived three years ago — af­ter be­ing vis­ited by the in­spec­tion ser­vice last month.

In­spec­tors praised head­teacher Pa­trick Mo­ri­arty as an “ex­cep­tional leader”; its “out­stand­ing” sixth form; and its learn­ing sup­port and Pears spe­cial re­source pro­vi­sion for pupils with spe­cial ed­u­ca­tional needs.

They recog­nised the school’s ethos and val­ues of in­clu­sive­ness as “key fac­tors” be­hind its suc­cess.

But they noted that “while teach­ing is good, in­con­sis­ten­cies re­main” and that “expectations are not al­ways high enough”.

Gov­er­nors’ chair Jeremy Kosky said t h e r e p o r t h a d “high­lighted JCoSS’s many ex­cep­tional strengths, the huge sup­port that we have from par­ents and the ex­cel­lent out­comes and progress of our stu­dents.

“JCoSS has es­tab­lished it­self as an ex­cel­lent school.”

Head­teacher Pa­trick Mo­ri­arty was de­scribed as ‘ex­cep­tional’
