Dereham Neatherd High School
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Dereham Neatherd High School.
This is a school that I am proud to serve as Headteacher. We are a community that works together to do our best and live up to the motto of our school: ‘Be whatever you want to be’.
Our school values sit closely with my own philosophy of how schools should serve their pupils and the community. We are traditional; we value our uniform, how pupils present themselves and we have rules that follow a strong moral purpose. We are inclusive; as a genuinely comprehensive school we welcome a huge diversity of young people into our school where everyone is treated fairly within a culture of mutual respect.
Leaders are maintaining students’ positive attitude towards learning by ensuring that the curriculum matches their needs and that teaching is usually lively and engaging.Ofsted
You celebrate difference and diversity within the student body, which helps to sustain a community characterised by tolerance and mutual respect.Ofsted
Students report that examples of bullying, including racial or homophobic bullying are rare and are usually dealt with quickly and effectively.
The assessment of students’ progress at Key Stage 4 is secure; leaders are making good use of their monitoring information to quickly identify individuals and groups of students who are at risk of falling behind and provide help so that they catch up.Ofsted
