Dear Sir

UNIVERSITY OF WINCHESTER – OfSTED OUTSTANDING

There is hugely justifiable reason for celebration at the University Department for Teacher Education. OfSTED and HMI carried out a very thorough two stage inspection in May and December 2017. They have graded the department as Outstanding in all four inspection areas, overall effectiveness, outcomes for students, quality of training and quality of leadership and management across the partnership. This covers 345 primary schools in very large part of the South East, Hampshire, Portsmouth, Southampton, Isle of Wight and several other counties.

The judgments were arrived at after considerable in-depth inspection and investigation. Students were found to become good and outstanding teachers because of the overall effectiveness of the DTE in ensuring they achieved high quality outcomes. From the partnership, they went on to become highly professional, confident enthusiastic, good and outstanding teachers. University, staff, school tutors and students, across such a diverse and geographically wide area are judged to be excellent. Schools provide excellent support. Working closely with the University DTE they must be congratulated for such high quality professional commitment to their students. They are substantially helping to shape these future teachers, judged by OfSTED as having exceptionally high levels of personal and professional conduct.  Students were found to have excellent curriculum subject knowledge, constantly evaluating the impact of their teaching to become skilled reflective practitioners. University and school leaders strive and achieve excellence in continuous improvement. Well done everyone!

This report is a huge, evidence based tribute to the staff of the DTE, lecturers, part time Link Tutors, administration staff, the leadership team and school staff. They have ensured that students achieve high quality standards, becoming practitioners of classroom excellence. However, it is a sad fact that 60% of these students will leave the teaching profession within five years and that all University funding across the UK has dropped by approximately one third in recent years. It is time for these issues to be comprehensively addressed in order that our excellent future teachers are not lost to the profession.

 

Yours sincerely             Peter Rees          Chair  Winchester Constituency Labour Party 

University of Winchester is Outstanding
