Ofsted 2018 Report


St Luke's School & Forest House Education Centre's most recent Ofsted Report:


Our next inspection is due within a year and this will be a full Section 5 Inspection (2 days).

We are delighted that Ofsted recognised the many strengths of St Luke's and FHEC and the intense work undertaken recently to move the school forward.

How do we evaluate ourselves?

In evaluating the school provision, we look at the following areas, which are also a focus for Ofsted, HMI and Hertfordshire Local Authority:

  • The Quality of Leadership
  • The Quality of Teaching and Learning
  • Children's Outcomes
  • Children's Welfare and Safety
  • Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural guidance


Within the areas above are key areas we robustly monitor and evaluate:
Child Protection and Safeguarding, Individuals' progress in learning and that of Vulnerable Groups, the effectiveness of teaching, the Quality of Work with our Partners, Finances and Value for Money, Health and Safety,

We now have rigorous systems of monitoring and evaluating pupils' progress, the quality of teaching and the effectiveness of our curriculum. We are confident in our systems to improve standards and will be robust in the analysis of progress as a result of changes put in place since September 2017.
