KER­RIDGE AND RAINOW School re­port is out­stand­ing

Macclesfield Express - - MACCLESFIELD PEOPLE -

STAFF and pupils at a vil­lage pri­mary school are cel­e­brat­ing get­ting top marks from a school watch­dog.

Rainow Pri­mary School re­ceived an ‘out­stand­ing’ re­port from Of­sted when in­spec­tors took a de­tailed look at the vil­lage school.

Mark Bertin­shaw, head­teacher, said: “This is a won­der­ful Of­sted re­port which rightly recog­nises the ex­cep­tional stan­dards of achieve­ment and out­stand­ing be­hav­iour of our chil­dren; it is a tes­ti­mony to the hard work and tal­ents of the staff, gov­er­nors and pupils at the school.”

In­spec­tors ob­served lessons, chil­dren’s be­hav­iour and looked in their books. As well as meet­ings with staff, they also spoke to the pupils both in a meet­ing and in­for­mally in the play ground to dis­cuss their opin­ions about the school.

In a sum­mery of key find­ings, lead In­spec­tor Ian Hard­man praised head­teacher Mr Bertin­shaw for his ‘ex­cep­tional lead­er­ship’.

It read: “The head­teacher pro­vides ex­cep­tional lead­er­ship.

“This re­sults in all pupils thriv­ing in a wel­com­ing and nur­tur­ing en­vi­ron­ment.

“Se­nior and middle lead­ers share the same pas­sion and vi­sion as the head­teacher and lead their ar­eas of re­spon­si­bil­ity with skill and rigour.

“Out­stand­ing teach­ing over time has re­sulted in ex­cel­lent out­comes for pupils in read­ing, writ­ing and math­e­mat­ics. Pupils make out­stand­ing progress through­out the school and are pre­pared ex­cep­tion­ally well for the next stage of their education.”

Pupils were also praised for their be­hav­iour.

The re­port con­cluded: “Be­hav­iour in lessons and around school is ex­em­plary.

“Pupils love com­ing to school and say they feel part of a large fam­ily. “Pupils rarely miss a day of school and all pupils at­tend well.”
