  • provision for students during lockdown including those students who are vulnerable 
  • outstanding provision in developing teachers and support staff practice (CPD)
  • how we analyse data and use it to provide a personalised approach for the teaching and learning students receive in both English and Maths
  • target-setting for pupils and also links with stakeholders
  • evidence of monitoring of teaching and learning and how we ensure all staff progress
  • evidence of improvement in both departments leading to outstanding outcomes for all students.

The inspector noted that both the Maths and English teams offer an outstanding education to their students and that staff have had extensive training and support to become excellent practitioners and deliver an outstanding education to the pupils of Harris Academy Rainham.

A huge well done to all our staff and students for this fantastic recognition!
