Prendergast Vale earns Ofsted upgrade

Congratulations to Prendergast Vale College, the Lewisham school that serves pupils aged 3-18. Its rapid improvement has now been recognised by Ofsted.

In its new Ofsted report, Prendergast Vale has earned a "Good" status, having been told previously that it required improvement.

The report notes that: "Pupils achieve well. They are making better and faster progress than they were at the time of the previous inspection. Progress is also much more consistent across the college."

I knew they could do it! Prendergasts teachers are a credit to themselves and all that they teach!. And I'm not saying that just because my kids go there! Well done to Mr O'Neill and all his fantastic staff.

Anon. Isn't that the school on a site that the Mayor rejected as a site for a school despite educationalists it was the ideal site?
Isn't it the site where a former deputy mayor said a school would never be built?

No. It is the former Lewisham Bridge where there has been a school on the site for over 100 years.

It being school admission season I thought it worth drawing attention to a
small and friendly Brockley school that often goes under the local radar, but
which has made enormous strides in the last 18 months, so much so that it has
'overtaken' other popular local schools with pupil achievement now in the top
25% of primary schools in England.
I’m talking about St.Mary Magdalen’s Catholic Primary School on Howson
Road, whose March 2014 Ofsted report said “Pupils make good progress. By the
end of Year 6 they reach standards that are above average in reading, writing
and mathematics.”

Since then progress has
continued apace under a determined Head and Deputy, with teachers and TAs who
are driven to get the best out of all pupils, and a Governing Body focused on
making the School the best it can be in the interests of the children.

The results of pupils in Year 6 in Summer 2014 put
St. Mary Magdalen's in the top 5% (very far above) schools in Lewisham and
nationally for Reading and Mathematics at level 4b+ and in Writing at level
4+. Furthermore the % of pupils gaining level 5+ (which was below Lewisham and
national averages in 2011), rose significantly above the Lewisham and national
average in
2014 - by 29.5% and 31.5% respectively. [Data taken
from the Lewisham School Profile, September 2014]

The School is “very pleased with the continual raising
of standards over the last 3 years, resulting in much improved changes to the
life chances of its pupils.”
