We are all a dedicated team at City of Rochester School and this inspection is a reflection of the journey from an “Inadequate” grade, and subsequently all the hard work that everyone – staff, community, parents, partners, trustees, advisory board and of course our pupils have put in to make our school such a fantastic place to be. The inspector noted, ‘this is a vibrant and active school.’, our ‘unified team has transformed the school’
The inspector said that ‘adults care deeply about pupils who, in turn feel confident that there is always someone to go to for help.’ This is a true demonstration of the perseverance and determination to get the best from our pupils.
We were praised for our curriculum – the ‘experiential learning curriculum being a notable strength’, a strong focus on future employability’ work with our external partners was described as “exemplary” and the quality assurance of this was described as ‘rigorous’.
This outcome is a great tribute to the partnership between us all and is richly deserved.
The City of Rochester School defines a complaint as any matter about which a parent of a pupil is unhappy and seeks action by the school. A complaint is likely to arise when there are issues of physical or emotional wellbeing and security at stake, or when the school's stated aims or values are being ignored. A breach of the law will always constitute a complaint.
