Caistor Primary School has received good ratings from Ofsted inspectors in all areas, with much moving towards outstanding.
Achievement of pupils and quality of teaching, as well as the behaviour and safety of pupils were all judged to be good in the report, which has just been received following the inspection at the end of March.
And the report also highlighted the strong leadership of the headteacher, ably supported by senior leaders, governors and all staff, which, it says, has been instrumental in improving teaching and raising pupils’ achievement.
“I am incredibly proud of our school and of this achievement,” said headteacher Zoe Hyams.
“The report celebrates our achievements to date, recognises our hard work and drive and we are now ready and well placed to improve even further.”
As part of the two-day visit, the three inspectors observed 18 lessons and part-lessons.
They listened to pupils read and observed the teaching of smaller groups and individual pupils in English and maths.
The Ofsted report states pupils from all backgrounds make good progress and achieve above average standards in Year 6 in reading, writing and maths.
It goes on to describe the teachers as knowledgeable and managing their classes well, enabling pupils to achieve well.
Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and emotional awareness is very well developed and this adds to their enjoyment of school life.
Discussions were also held with parents, pupils, staff, governors and a representative of the local authority.
“Staff, pupils, parents and governors all have a crucial role to play in being awarded a GOOD from Ofsted, and this reflects what a wonderful place our school is to be,” added Mrs Hyams.
