Changes made since the last OFSTED Inspection in January 2009 

  • HJPS has forged closer links with parents by inviting them to lesson drop-ins on a termly basis.
  • The Learning Platform is a communication tool for the parents to access information about the school.
  • A new, updated website has been put in place.
  • The newsletter is emailed weekly to parents.
  • The parent questionnaire has enabled the Senior Leadership Team to respond to parental need and where appropriate, to make operational changes.

Ofsted Report 2009

Local Authority Review 2012

The inspectors reported that:

‘…children’s behaviour and conduct when moving around the school, to and from lessons, assembly and playgrounds was judged to be exemplary and staff at all levels manage this behaviour well so that pupils are orderly and display good conduct.’

‘…All pupils interviewed stated that they felt safe and would know who to speak to if they had any issues and were confident that they would be resolved.’

The Ethos

‘The current Headteacher has been inspirational in changing the ethos of the school, supported well by senior leaders and school staff. The school is welcoming to all visitors and treats parents and pupils with equal respect.’

The Headteacher

‘The Headteacher goes over and above’ and ‘I cannot complain about anything, they tell me all I need to know.’ This clearly demonstrates the improvement against one of the key issues identified at the last Ofsted inspection.’
