Ofsted and Performance
Ofsted February 2014
Here is an extract taken from our most recent Ofsted report.
Wolviston Primary is an Outstanding School
Standards in reading and mathematics at both the end of Year 2 and Year 6 have been well-above average for a number of years. Attainment in writing has improved so that it is now significantly above average too. This is because leaders and teachers have worked hard together to improve pupils’ writing skills throughout the school.
Teachers use their excellent knowledge to plan work that stretches all pupils, including the most able. Lessons are interesting and expectations are high so that all pupils are eager to learn. Pupils’ attitudes and work ethic are exemplary and they make rapid progress as a result.
Pupils are proud ambassadors for their school. They show high levels of care for each other and older pupils take on active responsibilities in the day-to-day running of the school, for example, they sometimes lead assemblies and also help to achieve safe play times on a daily basis. As a result, behaviour and safety are both outstanding
The curriculum is rich and vibrant. While there is a strong emphasis on literacy and numeracy skills in all subjects, pupils also have a broad range of other experiences which make an excellent contribution to their wider understanding of the world.
The indoor and outdoor learning environment in the Early Years Foundation Stage is used extremely well with a wide range of activities that spark the interest of children.
Parents hold the school in high regard and say staff are extremely approachable. As one said, ‘I wish I was still at school, it is great.’
The headteacher has created a strong team of teachers and other staff who share her ambition that all pupils will reach the highest possible standards. This rigorous and determined approach has led to improvements in the quality of teaching and raised standards in writing so that both are now outstanding. This has been achieved within a positive atmosphere where staff and pupils thrive.
Governors are knowledgeable and have excellent plans in place to make sure the school continues to improve.
