Ofsted last visited us in September 2022 and stated that William Lilley continues to be a good school. We are thrilled that the Ofsted visit highlighted the many strengths and successes of our wonderful school. A small selection of comments from the report can be seen below:
"This is a happy and welcoming school."
"Pupils’ well-being is a priority for everyone in the school. As a result, pupils feel safe and well supported by staff."
"Staff expect pupils to try their best. Pupils work hard to meet these expectations and they learn well."
"Adults talk to pupils with respect and a deep sense of care. Staff work with skill and compassion to help pupils manage their behaviour."
"Leaders and staff have planned a curriculum that suits the needs of pupils. The curriculum is well organised and sequenced in all subjects."
"Children get off to a flying start in the early years."
"Pupils with SEND thrive in this school."
"Pupils’ personal development is at the heart of this school. Staff work hard to deepen pupils’ understanding of people’s similarities and differences. Pupils show respect when discussing differences and diversity"
