Our new school in Birmingham has received its first Ofsted inspection and we are rated ‘Good’ in all areas.
Headteacher Phil Petch said ‘It’s fantastic to get so many positive comments in our first Ofsted inspection. My team is excellent and they can be rightly proud of what we have achieved in a short space of time. I am particularly pleased by the comments from parents and carers to the Ofsted inspectors: you can’t get much better than people saying they are ‘delighted’.
Arc Oakbridge School is a specially designed, safe learning environment that supports young people with high functioning autism (ASC), including Asperger’s Syndrome and associated complex needs. It is located in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter
The Ofsted report highlighted why Oakbridge is such a great school:
‘In a short space of time, they have created a climate where pupils are nurtured, through positive, caring relationships. This has a strong impact on their well-being.’
‘The teachers… reignite a love for learning through exciting tasks based on pupils’ individual needs.’
‘Parents and carers are delighted with the school. They say that staff go ‘above and beyond’ to meet the needs of their pupils. Pupils who have not attended school for a long time say they enjoy coming to the school.’
‘The curriculum is carefully adapted to meet the needs of pupils.’
