The Office for Standards in Education, Children's Services and Skills (Ofsted) regulates and inspects to achieve excellence in the care of children and young people, and in education and skills for learners of all ages.
Following a recent visit by Ofsted’s inspectors (October 2023), we are delighted that the school was graded as ‘Good’ overall with 'Outstanding' in the category of personal development.
As part of our ongoing school improvement journey, we at Daubeney have a rigorous School Development Plan and monitoring and evaluation cycle. These are used to ensure clear steps are made to make us a good and better school. Hackney Education support us with termly visits and reviews. We are definitely not a requiring improvement school anymore.
What Ofsted said about Daubeney...
"Pupils enjoy attending this friendly and welcoming school. They are happy and safe here. Pupils know the ‘golden expectations’ and show kindness and respect to one another. Parents and carers say they feel part of a strong community."
"Pupils talk with confidence and enthusiasm about their learning. They look forward to the many opportunities to further enhance their learning, including subject ‘wow’ days and taking part in trips and performances."
"The school is ambitious for all pupils’ learning. Staff are skilled at identifying pupils with additional needs and support is carefully tailored to meet those needs. Pupils with SEND learn alongside their peers. Leaders have a plan in place to ensure that disadvantaged pupils are helped to make good progress."
"Pupils can talk about what they have learned and enjoy doing so. Staff are warm and encouraging and this helps less confident pupils to develop as they move up the school."
"The nursery environment is lively and enticing. Staff are skilled in developing children’s communication through activities and interactions. Children are helped to develop independence and to care for themselves."
"The school has a calm and purposeful atmosphere. Pupils are helpful and courteous."
