About our school
Happy Days All Round
Ashwicken Church of England Primary School
Celebrates another successful OFSTED Inspection.
Following a recent inspection the staff, parents, governors and pupils are thrilled to hear that they continue to be a GOOD school.
Mrs Collison, the Headteacher commented ‘that everyone is delighted that the findings are so positive. It was recognised that our school has a really happy family ethos where every child’s needs are met. I am very proud of the staff and governors for creating such a vibrant and inspiring learning environment where there are always new initiatives going on to engage and challenge our children’.
The Inspector reported that;-
‘The school is a haven of calm and cooperation, with adults and pupils enjoying working together’.
‘Pupils make good progress in English and Mathematics because teachers have high expectations of them’.
‘Pupils behave exceptionally well’.
‘Pupils enjoy a broad curriculum with lots of interesting and engaging opportunities for learning’.
‘Learning is also enhanced by a very good range of extra-curricular activities’.
A parent’s comment – ‘This is a great school with dedicated, passionate and committed staff which is well led and managed’.
Next steps for the school are to ensure that
- Systems for tracking progress in subjects other than in English and maths are embedded and used by all subject leaders so that they take greater responsibility for creating and implementing plans for improvement.
- Teachers more consistently challenge the most able pupils in subjects other than English or maths.
