Ofsted report

“Teachers carefully plan varied activities that take account of students’ earlier learning and individual needs. Students are often given opportunities to decide their own starting point or level of challenge. Challenging extension tasks are used well to require more able students to think more deeply. Teachers carefully target questions, give students thinking time before requiring an answer and support them in articulating more complex answers."
