Yavneh gets a great re­port

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY NEWS - BY DANIEL SUGARMAN

LO­CAL AU­THOR­ITY of­fi­cials who vis­ited Yavneh Col­lege to con­duct a one­day in­spec­tion were im­pressed with what they saw, ac­cord­ing to feed­back re­ceived by the school.

In the re­port sent to Spencer Lewis, the head­mas­ter of the Bore­ham­wood­based academy, the lead in­spec­tor praised both pupils and staff, stat­ing that “teach­ers use les­son time well and have high ex­pec­ta­tions”.

Tasks for stu­dents of­fered “high levels of chal­lenge” and the pupils were “con­fi­dent and en­thu­si­as­tic learn­ers”.

Stu­dents told in­spec­tors that “bul­ly­ing is very rare and would al­ways be dealt with im­me­di­ately”.

The over­all con­clu­sion was that “the school has demon­strated that it con­tin­ues to pro­vide an ex­tremely high level of pro­vi­sion for pupils across all ar­eas”.

Mr Lewis said: “The visit was ar­ranged by us in or­der to en­sure we main­tain the high­est stan­dards, given that it is a while since we had an Of­sted visit.” The ed­u­ca­tional watch­dog last vis­ited the school in 2011.

The lo­cal au­thor­ity in­spec­tion was de­signed “to mir­ror a po­ten­tial Of­sted in­spec­tion”.
