In our last Ofsted Inspection in March 2017, Baskerville School was judged to be a good school which shows that the school has maintained the same high standard as judged by the previous inspection conducted in February 2013.
There are many positive comments in the report, including:
The leadership team... instilled a culture of quality, care and high expectations that everyone shares.
The school is a calm and happy place. Daily routines... are well established. This provides security and stability for the pupils.
Pupils enjoy school, attend well, feel safe and are keen to learn.
Staff... use calming and de-escalation techniques effectively. As a result, physical intervention is rarely used.
Leaders and staff assess pupils' abilities, aptitudes and needs accurately. Leaders use this information effectively to decide on a pupil's curriculum pathway.
Pupils are making good progress from their starting points.
All safeguarding arrangements are fit for purpose and records are detailed and of high quality.
All of the pupils... feel safe in school, that they know who to talk to if they have a problem and that teachers care for them well.
Students are well prepared for the next stage of their education, employment or training.
In addition, the following are comments from parents conveyed to the inspectors:
Thank you is not enough for how much Baskerville staff go far and beyond their job roles to care for each child in the school.
My child has grown and progressed leaps and bounds in the seven years he has attended Baskerville!
My son is happy, safe and achieving his full potential at Baskerville academically and socially.
Rosemary would like to thank all staff again for their dedication and hard work and for the support of our parents and school governors.
