We are immensely proud to share our most recent Ofsted report with you, where we have been judged to be “Good” overall with OUTSTANDING Personal Development.
What is it like to attend our school?
Djanogly Sherwood was recognised as 'a school that is not only ambitious for its pupils but also its community'.
Everything that happens within the school focuses on preparing citizens who represent their five ‘Rs’ – respect, relationships, reflection, resilience and resourceful. One pupil stated: ‘They are like a food chain but it's a giant learning chain.’
Expectations are high for all within the school. The phrase written boldly on a wall, ‘The standard you walk past is the standard you accept’, reminds everyone of the need to have high aspirations. Staff understand this and the importance of being good role models.
Pupils feel safe and are happy at this school. They show high levels of maturity for their age because adults promote the importance of thinking carefully about one’s actions. Pupils are highly respectful of one another and behave exceptionally well. They develop character through discussion and debate.
Pupils understand the importance of diversity within their community and the wider world. This is no more embodied than in the school motto, ‘where everyone belongs’.
Parents appreciate the efforts the school goes to support and develop their child. They recognise that this goes beyond the academic. One parent stated: ‘The school goes the extra mile to provide those additional experiences that work for everyone.’
We pay tribute to our entire team and our supportive school community for sharing our vision and creating a school with a full, rich and varied curriculum. We are proud of the recognition of our ambition for all. We are thrilled that our inclusive ethos shines through our report and highlights our commitment to meeting the needs of all our Sherwood children.
