Dear Mr George

Short inspection of Loughton School

Following my visit to the school on 15 March 2016, I write on behalf of Her
Majesty's Chief Inspector of Education, Children's Services and Skills to report the
inspection findings. The visit was the first short inspection carried out since the
school was judged to be good in January 2013.

This school continues to be good.


Leaders have maintained the good quality of education in the school since the
previous inspection, while developing the school in a number of key areas. You have
determinedly ensured that pupils flourish as a result of the good care and rich
learning experiences that you and your staff provide. Your unstinting focus on
improving the quality of the curriculum has ensured that pupils are developing deep
knowledge and gaining skills across a wide range of subjects. Pupils and parents
value these well-planned opportunities. The collaborative, creative ventures in which
the whole school participates have helped to build a harmonious school community.
One parent commented that teachers `thought outside of the box' and the vast
majority of pupils said that they would recommend the school to a friend.

You have developed your pupils' communication skills very well so they can
confidently articulate the delight they feel at discovering a new fact or working out
how different concepts are linked. This creates a positivity which is palpable
throughout your school. You and your leaders systematically and efficaciously have
ensured that all pupils are clear about their role in creating the right conditions for
learning. You are explicit about what positive attitudes to learning look and feel like.
For instance, every class starts a new school year with a programme of lessons
entitled `our amazing brains', in which pupils are taught positive learning
behaviours. This is one of a number of ways in which you have ensured your
school's values are fully realised in everyday practice.
