Grands Vaux School review report published

16 May 2023

Grands Vaux School has been reviewed as part of the Jersey Schools Review Framework.

A team of four reviewers visited the school over three days from 28-30 March. The team was made up of an independent external lead reviewer, who has experience in conducting reviews in other jurisdictions, a Senior Adviser from the Department for Children, Young People, Education and Skills (CYPES) and senior school leaders currently working in Jersey schools. 

During the review, the review team visited lessons across all year groups; spoke to leadership staff and pupils; sampled pupils work and heard pupils read; and observed lessons, breaktimes and lunchtimes.

The Jersey Schools Review Framework was piloted across Government schools from 2016 – 2019. After a pause during COVID, review visits have restarted this academic year.

Reviews take place every three years and consider the environment in the school, the standards of learning, teaching and achievement, the behaviour and personal development of pupils, and the effectiveness of school leadership. 

Head teacher of Grands Vaux School, Maria McCool, said: “I feel privileged to work with such a dedicated team at Grands Vaux School. This was clearly evident and recognised in the review findings. I am pleased that our children had an opportunity to shine and really feel part of the process. The recommendations will support our school development plan and our community’s continued commitment to maximising success and reaching our full potential together. I wish to the thank the review team for their diligent work through a very thorough process.”
