Shropshire secondary school celebrates 'good' rating from Ofsted

Staff and pupils at a county secondary school are celebrating after their latest Ofsted inspection rated them as ‘Good’.

Vice principal James Foster, principal Andy McNaughton, and assistant vice principal Anna Vickers celebrate with pupils Joshua Perry, Zara Sagheer, Lizzie Pearson and Sean Twi-Yeboah.

In the first inspection since Covid 19, Ofsted representatives visited Charlton School, in Wellington, Telford, and met with trustees, governors, the principal, senior leaders, subject leaders, pastoral leaders, teachers, students and pupils.

They rated Charlton as officially ‘Good’ in all areas, including the quality of education, leadership and management, behaviour and attitudes, and personal development.

Principal Andy McNaughton said: “We are delighted that the exceptional progress the school has made over the past few years has been formally recognised.

“Although safeguarding in school is not a graded area, it was deemed to be effective and a real strength, with the inspectors commenting that it is exceptionally well-embedded in our culture.”
