Ofsted inspectors recommend longer beds….

With all the abuse going on in UK boarding schools, it’s good to see that Ofsted inspectors are ensuring children sleep in the correct length beds…

Only a “good” rating?

“A Market Rasen school which provides boarding accommodation for students is ‘really proud’ after a recent Ofsted inspection.

De Aston School, in Willingham Road, provides boarding accommodation for 60 students – with most of them from overseas. The school has retained its ‘good’ rating in the overall experiences and progress of children and young people, taking into account how well children and young people are helped and protected.

Head of boarding, Andrew Quinlan, said he is ‘very proud’ of the findings from the Ofsted inspection. […]

Mr Quinlan stressed that any problems identified by Ofsted have already been rectified. He said: “For sure, the inspectors made recommendations for further improvement and we have already addressed all of those or have the plans in place to sort the remaining ones by the start of term in September, including a few longer beds for the growth spurts of some of our tall teenagers.””
