John Leech MP has tabled an Parliamentary Motion in the House of Commons celebrating the work of all those at Lancasterian School, which was awarded its third consecutive “outstanding” grade following an Ofsted inspection on 1-2 April 2014.
Lancasterian School is a specialist interaction and communication school which provides education
for pupils who have physical disabilities, complex medical conditions and/or speech language and communication difficulties as well as moderate, severe or profound and multiple learning difficulties.
The school was warmly praised in every category of the inspection, including pupil achievement, teaching, safeguarding and leadership and management.
Reflecting on the report, John Leech MP stated “I am delighted to see Ofsted recognising once again the very high standard upheld at Lancasterian School. All the pupils, parents and staff should be very proud of their achievements and I know how much the local community really value the School.
I would like to particularly congratulate Executive Head Teacher Dave Calvert and Head Teacher Katie Cass for their superb management of Lancasterian and I look forward to seeing the school continue to thrive in years to come.”
The inspection report stated: “Pupils thoroughly enjoy coming to school and thrive on its friendly and welcoming atmosphere” while “pupils’ outstanding achievement is the result of the enormous capacity of leaders and staff to tackle and reduce the impact of pupils’ barriers to learning and making progress.”
