Ofsted inspection 28/29 November 2017
Dear Parents and Carers,
as you are aware, the school was inspected by Ofsted in November 2017. We are writing to share the key findings.
Firstly, we would like to thank everyone involved in the Inspection for their contribution: the children who were a credit to the school in everything they did; the staff for their hard work and professionalism; and the parents and carers who made their views clear through conversations with Inspectors and via the online ParentView survey. The report will be published on the Ofsted website shortly, so we have provided a short summary below for parents covering the key points.
The Inspector was very positive about a number of areas, and identified the following strengths:
The Inspector also identified the following areas of improvement:
The school has been judged as “Requires Improvement”. It is important to note that a school that “Requires Improvement” is not a school causing concern.
Everyone at the school is committed to achieving the required improvements as a matter of urgency, to ensure that all pupils achieve their full potential. Even before the inspection, senior leaders and governors had invited external advisers into school, and they will continue to support staff in implementing further changes. The positive impact of recent changes is already being clearly evidenced within school, and staff are confident that your children will benefit significantly from this extra support.
The Inspector stated clearly that leaders have a realistic view of the school’s position and are determined to secure the improvements required.
We would encourage you to read the full report, in which you will find many positive comments about Bryning with Warton St Paul’s Church of England Primary School. Should you wish to discuss the report, please contact us through the school office.
