“Pupils love school, finding it calm, supportive and nurturing. You are never far from stunning artwork or the sound of music. Pupils develop strong personal qualities and value the rich range of learning, from botany to woodwork. They behave well.
This school values individuality. One pupil spoke of being ‘able to let my guard down and be me’.”
So opens the first paragraph of Ofsted’s recent report on Brighton Waldorf School!
On the teaching of reading inspectors found – “Teachers encourage a love of reading, including stories, poetry and non-fiction. The school introduces pupils to a diverse range. Older pupils read challenging texts fluently and recall their favourite books and genres.
The report acknowledges that Covid “hampered” the work being done by the school to raise standards and that parents and pupils praised the online provision created during lockdowns.
Congratulations to all the staff and pupils at Brighton for their hard work during very challenging times.
