Outstanding leadership has seen a rapid improvement - that was the view of the Ofsted inspector who spent two days at Kelsey Primary School.

Teaching is good, noted the inspector, with the work well matched to pupils’ different abilities, and as a result ‘across the school, pupils of different abilities, including the most able, achieve well.’

“As a result of this teaching,” the inspector commented, “the school has improved rapidly since its last inspection because of outstanding leadership that has secured better teaching and learning.”

The inspector was also impressed with pupils’ behaviour in lessons and particularly in the before and after club.

“As a consequence of pupils’ enjoyment and sense of being safe, attendance levels are above average,” he added.

Leadership and management was graded ‘outstanding’ in the report, published on October 22, with achievement of pupils, quality of teaching and behaviour and safety of pupils all giving the school an overall ‘good’ grading.

“The whole team at Kelsey Primary School - staff, governors, parents and pupils - should take huge satisfaction from this report, particularly as it highlights the rapid progress we have made,” said headteacher Magnus Smedley, who was delighted by the overall result of this latest inspection.

“From this strong position we will strive for further development as we aim to be outstanding.”
