Callington Community College does not currently have a formal Ofsted designation, and is awaiting a full Ofsted inspection.
In June 2017 however, Ofsted conducted a ‘no formal designation, section 8 monitoring inspection’ at the College. This kind of inspection is for schools (like Callington Community College) that do not have an Ofsted status, and usually has a very specific focus. In this case, four inspectors were at the College for two days looking in ‘forensic’ detail at the effectiveness of safeguarding at the College.
There are two judgements that the inspectors can make. Either safeguarding is effective, or it is not; and the College is pleased to report that not only was safeguarding deemed to be effective at Callington Community College, but that strengths were found in all areas.
What was also extremely pleasing was that the lead inspector (who carried out the previous monitoring inspections at the College) was impressed by how much progress has been made at the College this year; and recognised that this represents a significant step forward in the capacity and effectiveness of the school. Parents and carers can feel confident therefore, that the improvements evidenced in this report, are taking place across all aspects of the College’s work.
The College is now very well placed to continue making the improvements that will ensure that students are provided with a truly outstanding education at Callington Community College.
