Positive Learning, Positive Life

Latest Ofsted Report

We were classified as Good by OFSTED in February this year.

We had the call that OFSTED would be coming in February.  After the inspection here is a summary of why they think The Livity School is a GOOD school.

The school continues to provide a good education for its pupils, whose overall achievement is good. In some important ways the school has become even better since the last inspection.

Pupils make good progress, for some it is outstanding. This was acknowledged in the Lambeth Achievement Award ceremony held at the Festival Hall during the inspection. Increased use of information on pupils’ progress is improving teachers’ understanding of how individual pupils are doing.

Teachers have high expectations and whatever the learning difficulties of their pupils they expect them to do their very best. Strong support also helps pupils’ social and emotional development, and overall this helps explain why achievement is good.

Behaviour and safety are of the highest order, even though many pupils arrive with very challenging behaviour. Detailed plans and close working with parents and other professionals support rapid improvement. Great care is taken to ensure the well-being of pupils who are potentially very vulnerable.

Leaders are focused on providing first-class education and leadership, and the expanded leadership team has brought a wider range of expertise than existed previously. Good monitoring and support have enabled teaching and achievement to go on improving since the last inspection.

The effective governing body contains a range of relevant expertise that enables governors to support the effective management of the school.
