Reach 2 Moderated Trust Review.


On 14th and 15th November 2018, we had a visit from a team of six reviewers. During the two days, the reviewers thoroughly and rigorously looked at all aspects of school effectiveness. The team:

  • Visited lessons;
  • Talked to parents, staff, children and Governors;
  • Looked at children’s books;
  • Interviewed leaders;
  • Carried out a learning walk.

The review team agreed with our own evaluation that the school is in a strong place and is making good progress to meet the high expectations we aspire to and our children deserve. Here are some quotes from the team:


"There is a culture of high expectations at Summerside. Pupils typically behave very well. They are proud of their school and really love coming to school."


"The school keeps a careful check on how well each individual pupil is doing. Any pupil at risk of falling behind with their learning is quickly picked up and additional support is provided, where appropriate. There is strong commitment to ensuring equality of opportunity for all pupils at Summerside. "


"Pupils are very thoughtful and reflective at Summerside and show high levels of care and concern for others other. Pupils work very well in groups together."


"Lessons are typically well-planned and well-delivered. Teachers plan together in year group teams… and this helps ensure consistent provision across each year group. Teachers and teaching assistants form a strong team; typically working seamlessly together to make a significant contribution to pupils’ learning."
