On 16th November 2016 Pilgrim Pathways School, formally the Pilgrim PRU, was inspected by OFSTED. The outcome of this inspection was that the school continues to be Outstanding.

This was a short inspection (Section 8) as the school was judged to be Outstanding at the previous inspection in September 2011.

The purpose of a short inspection is to determine whether the school continues to provide a good standard of education and whether safeguarding is effective.

The inspection team reviewed all areas of our work and found that:

‘The leadership team has maintained the outstanding quality of education in the school since the last inspection.’

‘Pupils make outstanding progress in all four centres.’

(November 2016)

The judgements of Ofsted are in line with our own self-evaluation.The areas for improvement identified by OFSTED are those that we were aware of and which feature in our Improvement Plan.

I would like to thank all staff at the Pilgrim Pathways School for their efforts before, during and after the inspection and all of our partners who have helped us so much. And finally, a huge thank you to our students who were exceptionally forthcoming and welcoming.
