Ofsted report


Catch22 include Bristol is monitored by Ofsted. The school was last inspected in January 2019 and received a ‘Inadequate’ rating. Catch22 Include Bristol are very disappointed by this result and we have already taken significant steps to improve on this rating:

  • We have begun the implementation of CPOMS across all sites. This is to ensure that the recording and reporting of all safeguarding concerns are done so in timely fashion. At the same time we are training all staff on the effective implementation of the system.

  • Additional INSET days have been scheduled for the 14 and 15 February 2019. The main focus of these days is to address the issues regarding the Safeguarding and safety of students. This will include safeguarding and child protection training as well as a full review of risk assessments and organisation of trips and visits.

  • We have commissioned an external consultancy firm to complete a full and thorough external safeguarding review, this is to allow us to highlight progress that has been made since the inspection and also review how Catch22, as the Proprietor, support the school.

  • All exclusions now follow the statutory guidance. Historic issues regarding the use of exclusions were identified during the inspection and have now been addressed. Further training on 15 February is planned to address the culture and ethos of all sites to ensure that a consistent approach is implemented.

  • We have discussed support for our Lead Practitioners with a number of external agencies so that they are able to share best practice with colleagues at local authority network sessions, as well as take part in local MAT training, network and support sessions.

Although the inspection result was disappointing there were a number of positives which are summarised below:

  • Staff are keen and enthusiastic. They acknowledge the improvements required and relish the task at hand. There is unity behind leaders’ visions for the future.
  • Leaders acted swiftly to address the shortcomings raised in the additional inspection in 2018 at the Midsomer Norton site. This has helped to reduce dangerous behaviour and risks to pupils’ safety.
  • Pupils have a range of opportunities that promote their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. For example, they learn about different faiths and cultures. Leaders have also utilised local links, such as working with the police to fully understand their roles in protecting the community. Across all sites, British values are a strong feature of the school’s curriculum.
  • Leaders provide pupils with good-quality careers advice. Pupils have regular opportunities to consider how best to plan for their futures. They share their goals with a skilled adviser who then facilitates opportunities for pupils to practise writing a curriculum vitae, prepare for an interview and take part in work experience. Leaders ensure that the advice pupils receive is impartial and closely considers pupils’ interests and skills.

School performance


Our aims are to ensure that all students leave with a positive destination and with a range of age related qualifications. This includes the aim that all students leave with at least five qualifications (at least one will be a GCSE) including English and Maths.

In 2017-18 75% of our learners achieved English and Maths qualifications and more than 70% have gone on to a positive destination. Some of the headline figures for our results are below, however if you would like more information please do not hesitate to contact Mark Kennedy or the administration office.
