We’re proud to announce R.E.A.L. Independent Schools Mansfield has received a ‘GOOD’ Ofsted rating after a recent inspection in March.

The report described RIS Mansfield as “providing pupils with a fresh start to their education” and that “the school wants the best for pupils.” One learner they spoke to said: “Everyone understands me. I am accepted here.”

Inspectors held meetings with the Headteacher, Director of Education and other senior leaders, as well as carrying out in-depth reviews into reading, maths and PSHE. For each in-depth review, inspectors held discussions about the curriculum, looked at curriculum plans,

visited lessons, spoke to both teachers and learners and looked at samples of their work.

The report found that “the curriculum is designed specifically to meet the diverse needs of pupils, is ambitious and subject planning is skillfully crafted.”

They recognised staff spend time getting to know each learner as an individual, taking into account their strengths and interests, while supporting learners to “improve their self-esteem and change their attitudes to a ‘can do’ narrative.”

The report also acknowledges that parents and carers are full of praise for the school. One parent said: “The school has made a huge difference to our lives.”

The report makes the fourth ‘GOOD’ inspection for RIS Mansfield and highlights how our vision of “we believe every child has a future” is evident throughout the school.
