Care Quality Commission (CQC)

Sandwell Local Authority SEND Department Is Being Re-Visited By OFSTED

From 18 March 2019 to 21 March 2019, Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) will carry out jointly a re-visit of your local area following the previous inspection that took place between 16 January 2017 and 20 January 2017.

The re-visit will evaluate how effectively leaders have addressed the areas of serious weaknesses detailed in the written statement of action (WSOA). During the re-visit, Ofsted and CQC inspectors will be keen to speak to as many children and young people and their parents and carers as possible, specifically about the weaknesses identified in the WSOA.

How can parents and carers contribute their views during this local area re-visit?

The inspectors will gather the contributions of parents and families through an online survey and a face-to-face open meeting. The focus of the online survey and open meeting will be set by the inspectors and will be based on the WSOA.

Parents and carers who would like to take part in this survey can follow this internet link:

Sandwell LASEND Re-visit survey. The survey will open at 12 noon on Monday 11 March 2019 and close at 12 noon on Friday 15 March 2019.

Parents and carers can submit their contributions via the online survey using the link provided above.

An open meeting, which will focus on areas identified in the WSOA, will take place on 18 March 2019. Parents and carers can contact their local Parent Carer Forum / SENDIASS (0121 500 4010) to request details of how to be part of the discussions between parents and carers and the Ofsted/CQC re-visit team.

Ofsted Report 7 March 2017

Ofsted Report March 2017

Holly Lodge is celebrating their latest Ofsted inspection result. The inspection reports so full of really positive statements that are such a true reflection of the daily routines and progress made by students at the school. Inspectors found that “This school continues to be good” the school has a real momentum and has continued to maintain a standard it can be pleased with.

Holly Lodge continues to be a school of parental choice and has grown significantly since the last inspection in 2013 to over 1450 students.

The report from the inspection highlights “leadership team are fully committed to creating a culture of continuous school improvement”

Students are “well behaved”, “engaged enthusiastically with their learning” and “polite and courteous to each other around the school site”

As Headteacher I have to confess to being so proud of my staff and students. The school has outstanding and committed staff who continually work to challenge and develop students through their teaching and support.

With such a resource we are able to boast about the level of progress our students make “Pupils made significantly better progress than others nationally in languages and humanities” Parents are supportive and can rest assured that their children are in an environment in which “Leaders, including governors, take their responsibilities for safeguarding very seriously.” And one in which “The curriculum includes numerous opportunities to improve pupils’ understanding of how to keep themselves safe.”

What is more this success stretches through to a growing Sixth form which has seen records for performance beaten each year so far. Holly Lodge is a school proud of what it provides to its community and will continue to strive to live up to its core belief in ‘Success for All’.

“The school has welcomed a considerable number of pupils who are newly arrived in the UK and are providing good support to help them develop English language skills and an understanding of British values”
