    · Premises of and accommodation at schools;

    The report highlights that since the previous inspection in September of 2018, school leaders have worked to ensure greater consistency between school sites.

    Several experienced and highly competent Heathside School staff have been appointed to join Heathside School’s key leadership team.  This team is focused on the continued strengthening of consistency of health and safety and all of the provisions required by Ofsted, as well as the ongoing development of excellent boarding and accommodations for both students and staff.  In addition, the Heathside Governance and Safeguarding Advisory Board has been established with 10 governors in place.

    Nick Shaw, Head of Boarding at Heathside School, says, “The staff at Heathside have put in a great deal of hard work and dedication in order to ensure that all the pupils, both day and boarding, know that they are in a safe and happy school.”
