Village school still ‘good’

EWELME Primary School has retained its “good” rating from education watchdog Ofsted.

EWELME Primary School has retained its “good” rating from education watchdog Ofsted.

The school was rated “good” in all four categories assessed — the achievement of pupils, the quality of teaching and the behaviour and the safety of pupils.

The inspectors’ report said: “The school has made good progress since the previous inspection and continues to improve quickly. There has been good improvement in pupils’ performance and leaders have a good track record for developing teaching.

“Pupils feel safe and thoroughly enjoy school. They are polite, sociable and articulate and they behave well.”

The school’s curriculum was “lively and engaging” and inspectors noted pupils’ attainment was consistently above average.

The inspectors suggested pupils should be given more opportunities to write and that work in year one should take into account different abilities.

Headteacher Margery Slatter said: “We have done very, very well in our recent inspections and this reflects the efforts of everyone... our teachers, support staff, parents, governors and, of course, our children.”
