Pri­mary school’s Of­sted suc­cess

Macclesfield Express - - WILDLIFE -

A PRI­MARY school is cel­e­brat­ing af­ter get­ting the thumbs up from ed­u­ca­tion in­spec­tors.

Of­sted vis­ited Bollinbrook CE Pri­mary School on Abbey Road and rated it ‘good’.

It is an im­prove­ment on the last in­spec­tion which Of­sted found was down to the “com­mit­ment, vi­sion and de­ter­mi­na­tion” of the school’s man­age­ment.

In­spec­tors said Bollinbrook was “a happy school with a har­mo­nious and car­ing at­mos­phere” where pupils ‘are pre­pared well for life in mod­ern Bri­tain’.

Teach­ing was found to be con­sis­tently good and teach­ing as­sis­tants hailed ‘a key part of each class­room team’.

Of­sted rated Re­cep­tion lessons as good and the cur­ricu­lum ‘ex­cit­ing’, adding that ‘an ex­ten­sive range of vis­its pro­vides pupils with in­valu­able op­por­tu­ni­ties to add rich­ness to their learn­ing’.

In or­der for the school to reach the ‘out­stand­ing’ rat­ing Of­sted called on the school to chal­lenge the most able pupils more, give pupils more op­por­tu­ni­ties to prac­tise their writ­ing skills, im­prove the feed­back on work and im­prove pupils’ hand­writ­ing.
