Beeston Fields Primary & Nursery School, part of The Flying High Trust, is celebrating the news that their recent Ofsted inspection has resulted in the school being awarded a ‘Good’ rating.
In the summary of findings, the school is praised for its ‘relentless determination to improve the school’ stating that, ‘Teaching across key stages 1 and 2 is highly effective’, and that ‘Pupils experience a broad and enriching curriculum’. The report also recognises that disadvantaged pupils, or those with special educational needs (SEN), are achieving well. Safeguarding, leadership and management are all described as good, and staff are praised for their care of the welfare of children.
Praise is given to the children of Beeston Felds Primary & Nursery School noting that their ‘attitudes towards their learning are highly positive. They take pride in their work and use their engaging learning environment to further their reading skills and develop their understanding of different subjects.’
The report states, “The headteacher, teachers, governors and the trust have exhibited a relentless determination to improve the school over the last two years.”
Head Teacher Claire Lindsay says this is great news for the school which has been improving year on year. “We are delighted with Ofsted’s findings! It is a fitting testament to the hard work of the children and staff and to the support we receive from our families and the wider community. We know that we have the best ingredients to improve further, and we have no intention of resting on our laurels. We will take a moment to celebrate this result and then it will be back to work. Happily, though, we will be a step closer towards our aim of being an outstanding school!”
The report says that the school needs to improve consistency of the quality of teaching, learning and assessment in early years, and should also improve on the effectiveness of leaders new to their roles.
