‘Good’ rating for primary schools
Published 26/11/12



RAF Benson Primary School has been rated “good” by education watchdog Ofsted.

This is an improvement on the “satisfactory” rating awarded to the school after its last inspection two years ago.

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

The inspectors’ report said: “Due to the good care and guidance given by staff, pupils are well-behaved, eager to learn and feel safe in school.”

The school’s system of teaching early reading skills was praised and inspectors noted that pupils’ ability to read was often above that expected for their age when they left the school.


The inspectors suggested ensuring that pupils, especially the more able ones, were given more demanding tasks.

Headteacher Steph Fawdry said: “We are really pleased that we are now a ‘good’ school and we want to build on that to gain an outstanding rating in the future.

“Ten years ago the school was placed in special measures and it has been on an incredible journey since then.”

Meanwhile, Ewelme Primary School has retained its “good” rating.

The inspectors said the school had continued to improve.
