Iona School’s Ofsted Report 2013-read it here

Here is a highlight:

“Iona Steiner School achieves its stated aim and provides a good, and in several respects outstanding, education within the ethos of the Steiner philosophy.  Teaching is outstanding and is supported by good quality, thorough assessment. The good quality curriculum ensures a wide range of learning experiences for all pupils through the imaginative interpretation of the Steiner Waldorf themes.  As a consequence, pupils of all abilities become effective learners, make good and sometimes very good progress and achieve well.   Pupils’ spiritual, moral and social development is outstanding and their cultural development is good.  Pupils’ personal development is successfully fostered in all aspects of the school’s work.  Pupils’ behaviour is outstanding.  Outcomes for children in the Kindergarten are outstanding.  Procedures for welfare, health and safety are consistently good and appropriate safeguarding policies are implemented effectively.  Pupils enjoy coming to school and parents are overwhelmingly supportive of the school and its commitment to the education of their children.”
