Rob Martlew, the new headteacher of Litcham School, has won glowing praise from education watchdog Ofsted.
In rating the school as “good”, the inspectors sy that Mr Martlew “has had a significant impact on raising the expectations of both teachers and pupils and has swiftly resotred the drive to ensure that every pupils must achieve their best”.
The report says that the quality of teaching, learning and assessment is good. Teachers use effective questioning to secure pupils’ udnerstanding. Good practice is readily shared in the school and with other schools and most pupils are achieving well with attainment at GCSE above the national average.
However, the report notes that the ‘all-through’ school needs to further improve its early years provision, and key state 2 results are lagging.
