West London £9k a year private school downgraded from Outstanding to Requires Improvement

The French primary school has lost its Outstanding rating

A West London private school has been downgraded by Ofsted. La Petite Ecole Française has lost its Outstanding rating and is now rated Requires Improvement after the school watchdog visited the school.

Pupils know which areas of the school they can misbehave in and most students told Ofsted disruption was affecting their learning. An inspector wrote in a report: “Expectations for pupils’ behaviour are not consistently high. Leaders have not written and implemented a suitable behaviour policy.

“Staff have not been trained to understand the school’s approach to rewards and sanctions. This leads to differences in the way behaviour is managed. Sometimes, pupils misbehave or disrupt learning in lessons.

“These behaviours are not dealt with consistently well. Pupils know that they can misbehave in some areas of the school and sometimes do. Most pupils said that low-level disruption sometimes affects their learning.”

The school, which costs £9,000 a year, was also criticised by Ofsted for not giving its staff proper training. English teachers did not have up-to-date books to give to students and some teachers lacked training.

The report added: “Leaders do not provide staff with a consistent programme of professional development. Some teachers, such as external specialist teachers, receive no training at all. Teachers, such as those responsible for teaching reading in English, rely on training they had many years ago.”

The school teaches in both English and French and most pupils are fluent by the time they are 11 years old. Pupils are taught a range of subjects in both languages and Ofsted praised the school for its range of extracurricular activities.

Students are able to go to clubs such as gardening, drama, pottery, martial arts and chess and enjoy the “friendly, welcoming school.” Older pupils also told Ofsted inspectors how much they had enjoyed a recent trip to Edinburgh.

The school watchdog noted that pupils, aged between three and 11 are punctual and bullying is rare at the school. La Petite Ecole Française has been contacted for comment.
