Quotes from the Ofsted Report

The Charles Dickens School is a good school. It gives good value for money. Students achieve well.

The percentage of students identified as having special educational needs (SEN) is above the national average and the percentage with a statement of special educational needs is also above the national average.

Teaching and learning are good and the school provides a good quality of education overall.

Provision for students who are visually impaired is very good, but targets in individual education plans (IEPs) for students with special educational needs (SEN) are often too general.
