PUPILS, staff, parents and governors at Greenfield Primary School are all celebrating after coming top of the class with an ‘outstanding’ rating from Ofsted.
Impressed inspectors gave the school the top grade in all five categories – Leadership and Management, Behaviour and Safety of Pupils, Quality of Teaching, Achievement of Pupils and Early Years Provision – to result in outstanding Overall Effectiveness.
And headteacher Mike Wood admitted the school was thrilled after working hard to improve on their rating of ‘good’ with outstanding features for the last three inspections.
“We’re absolutely delighted,” he said. “It’s down to teamwork as all the teachers, parents, pupils, and governors have had a part to play in the success of the school.
“I have received numerous letters and emails of congratulations. It’s a really lovely time for us.
“At the recent Parents’ Evenings it was wonderful to see the pride on parents’ faces as they are as pleased as the staff that their children’s school is doing so well.”
The key findings in the report state praise the ‘outstanding leadership by the headteacher and other senior leaders’ and note that the ‘teaching is inspiring and of the highest quality’.
It adds that ‘pupils’ outstanding behaviour is a major strength of the school’ and concludes that ‘the school is well placed to thrive in the future and reach even higher standards’.
The rating is a second success for the school after the Nursery, which is based in the school grounds, was rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted last year – just four months after opening.
