School Description by Ofsted

Information about the school
The Iona School is an independent co-educational day school for pupils aged
between three and twelve. It opened in Nottingham in 1985. The school has a
separate nursery department for children aged from six months to three and a half
years, which is registered with Children's Services Directorate and had its last
inspection in 2005. There is one pupil for whom English is not their first language. In
line with normal Steiner practice there is no headteacher, the College of Teachers is
responsible for the educational provision. An Associative Leadership made up of
teachers, parents and friends manages the school. The administrator is in charge of
day-to-day running of the school.
The school's curriculum and teaching are inspired by the philosophy of Rudolf Steiner
as expressed through the Steiner Waldorf curriculum:
The school believes `that education should be a continuing process and our task is to
stimulate and develop the faculties and skills, which enable our pupils to learn...for
life...from life...throughout life.'
Evaluation of the school
The Iona School is successful in meeting its aims. It provides a good quality of
education and care, where all pupils are valued as individuals. Through the effective
use of the Steiner curriculum, taught well by experienced, knowledgeable and
committed staff, pupils make good progress. Parents are very supportive of the
school and its success with their children. One parent felt that `children are allowed
to be children' and another noted `I feel privileged my son attends...this is an
absolutely incredible school'. The school meets all but one of the requirements for
registration.
Quality of education
The curriculum is of a good quality. In the kindergarten the curriculum for the
younger children is planned around their developmental needs. The kindergarten
provides a good quality, imaginative learning environment, which enables children to
make good progress. The core of the curriculum for the three combined classes from
Years 2 to 7 is termed the `main' lesson, with the Steiner Waldorf themes
