Staff and pupils at Patchway’s Callicroft Primary School are celebrating after receiving a positive inspection report from Ofsted.
Ofsted inspectors visited the school at the end of June and awarded an overall rating of ‘good’, with each of the five individual areas reviewed also assessed as ‘good’. This demonstrates the great progress that has been made since the previous Ofsted inspection in June 2013 when the school was rated as ‘requires improvement’.
Inspectors stated: “Teaching has improved since the last inspection and is now effective because pupils receive work that is at the right level for them. Teachers ensure that pupils are aware of what they are going to learn and that they are given clear steps to follow so that they know when they have been successful in their learning. Checks to measure the effectiveness of teaching and learning are rigorous. Consequently, the effectiveness of the school continues to improve.”
The report also praised the school’s leadership and management, saying: “Senior leaders have a clear vision for school improvement and a drive to achieve the best outcomes for pupils.”
Headteacher Nicola Antwis said:
“This report is great recognition of the dedication of our staff, the vision of our governors and leaders and the commitment of pupils, parents and carers. We are immensely proud of the report and see a bright future for the school and every pupil.”
