Essex LA peer review of OV school

Essex Local Authority carried out a peer review of Oak View School on 1st October. The reviewers recognised many areas of strength and were very impressed with the school.

The reviewers evaluated safeguarding, teaching and learning, curriculum, behaviour, assessment and many other aspects of the school, as well as visiting classrooms to see pupils and teaching staff.

The reviewers recognised as strengths:

  • communication throughout the school,
  • pupil independence,
  • the passion of the staff,
  • behaviour management,
  • teacher knowledge of the pupils,
  • the zones of regulation,
  • pupil voice,
  • the curriculum,
  • autism practice,
  • effective safeguarding,
  • calm and well organised learning environments.

A full report will be issued in the coming weeks.

Thank you to all the parents and carers who helped in the review and who filled out questionnaires. If any parents want to follow up on comments they made, please contact the school and we will be happy to discuss them with you.
