2 Why Choose Heanor Gate? Excellence in a Caring Community

3 This weekend we took our son to start his university education at Birmingham City university where he will be studying visual communication and specializing in animation. We could not have been more pleased with his A level results after gaining 3 A* and an A in his chosen subjects. He would not have achieved this without the help and superb education he received at Heanor Gate Science College. The school did not just educate William and prepare him for his next step in his life but it helped him cope with his own personal challenges thrown up by his medical condition. This included the allocation of a support worker, providing work at short notice during hospital stays and even changing exam dates to allow them to be sat once out of hospital. Excellence in a Caring Community

4 My daughter is now in Y11 and I have always been completely happy with the school, as I stressed in the parent questionnaire. I have worked in education for over 20 years and have never met so many dedicated staff that go the extra mile than those working at your school. Chloe has developed so much, both academically and personally during her time there, so much so that she hopes to be accepted in to Sixth Form next year. My experience with Heanor Gate over the last five years has been exceptional. Both my son and daughter have gained so much whilst attending the school. The support my son has received for his dyslexia has been second to none - that comes from a parent who used to pay £50 for an hour and a half private lesson per week. My daughter is exceeding her targets and growing into a more confident young lady full of potential. You are all doing a fantastic job! Excellence in a Caring Community

10 Ofsted 2011 Heanor Gate Science College provides an outstanding all-round education for its students Leaders and managers of the school are exceptional in the way they have introduced a can do culture of improvement and a strong sense of purpose that is raising the aspirations of students and their parents and carers.

11 Ofsted 2014 New Revised Framework from 1 September 2013New Revised Framework from 1 September 2013 4 Key Areas:4 Key Areas: Achievement Achievement Teaching Teaching Leadership Leadership Behaviour Behaviour VERY specific judgement criteriaVERY specific judgement criteria Domino effect if one area inadequateDomino effect if one area inadequate

12 JUDGEMENT 1: ACHIEVEMENT Inadequate (4) Achievement is likely to be inadequate if ANY of the following apply. From their different starting points, the proportions of pupils making expected progress, and the proportions exceeding expected progress, in English or in mathematics are consistently below national figures and show little or no improvement. For pupils for whom the pupil premium provides support, the proportions making and exceeding expected progress from the different starting points in English or in mathematics are consistently well below those of other pupils and show little or no improvement. Pupils learning and progress in any key subject or key stage, including the sixth form or the Early Years Foundation Stage, indicate they are underachieving. Groups of pupils, particularly disabled pupils and/or those who have special educational needs and/or those for whom the pupil premium provides support, and/or the most able, are underachieving. Pupils communication skills (including reading and/or writing) or proficiency in mathematics are not sufficiently strong for them to succeed in the next stage of education, training or employment. Attainment is consistently below floor standards or is in decline and shows little, fragile or inconsistent improvement. There are wide gaps in the attainment and/or the learning and progress of different groups.
