Staff and students at Bromsgrove's Parkside Middle School celebrate maintaining 'Good' rating

STAFF and students at Parkside Middle School in Bromsgrove are celebrating maintaining after maintaining a ‘good’ rating following a visit from the inspectors.

The report, published last Wednesday following the visit in July, said the leadership team maintained a good quality of education, ensuring teaching, the curriculum and pupil’s progress had improved.

Staff were praised for being hardworking and enthusiastic and for showing great care for individual pupils which made very positive relationships between teachers and pupils being central to the success.

Headteacher Neil Mills said: “We’re delighted with the outcome of the inspection and that the exemplary behaviour of the pupils and their outstanding progress was rightly recognised.

“The report highlights that the school has continued to improve and we’re understandably proud of this.”

The school, he said, worked very closely with others in the area as part of the Bromsgrove Middle Schools Learning Partnership, offering an exceptionally high standard of education.

Going forward, further attention should be given to improving pupils’ progress in reading, maths and other subjects so it matches the exceptional progress made in writing.

Any remaining unevenness in teaching should be tackled so all teaching is of the highest possible quality.
