Ofsted praise for Legsby school

A GOOD school, making marked improvements under the guidance of the energetic headteacher - that is how Legsby School has been judged in its recent Ofsted inspection.

The inspector praised the school’s strongly held values of respect and support for the individual, as well as the good teaching, which was “accelerating pupils’ progress.”

“Good teaching leads directly to good learning in lessons … pupils achieve well, especially in both English and mathematics, during their years in school.”

And the report went on to say: “The quality of teaching is good. Relationships with adults and pupils are very good because of the calm, positive and listening role carried out, uniformly, by all staff.”

Headteacher David Miskell, who only joined the school last September, was delighted with the report.

“I am very proud of the efforts of the pupils at Legsby throughout the year,” he said.

“I would like to thank the staff, parents and governors of the school who give freely of their time and play a huge part in giving our pupils a fantastic schooling experience.”

Leadership and Management throughout the school was also deemed to be good and “members of the governing body give generously of their time in supporting the school.”

Ivor Davey, Chair of Governors, said: “The Governors are delighted with the Ofsted report and with the good progress the children have made since the last inspection.

“The report highlights the effectiveness of teachers and management and the capacity of the school to move forward.”
