Ofsted have relabeled Teddington School as ‘requires improvement’ down from it’s ‘good’ rating in the latest Ofsted report.
The report criticised the quality of teaching branding it ‘very mixed, and overal, not good enough’.
Ofsted also found that pupils weren’t being challenged enough which forced ‘bored pupils’ to be disruptive.
One parent was said to have commented that the work was “too easy” for her “frustrated” son.
Despite the negativity, the sixth form was praised and received a ‘good’ rating.
Kathey Pacey, the acting headteacher, used an open letter to reiterate that ‘she was working hard to deal with the concerns’.
Misbehaving pupils can now be “fast-tracked” out of classrooms into a separate room, with a 45 minute after school detention overseen by senior staff as punishment.
Ms Pacey added: “I know that we can work together to improve outcomes for all our pupils.
“However, we should remember that Teddington’s GCSE results in 2017 were pleasing.
“81 per cent of our pupils achieved five or more GCSEs A*-C, and 66 per cent achieved Grade 5 or above in the new English and Maths GCSEs (B/C).
