Primary is rated good by Ofsted

PEPPARD Primary School has retained its “good” rating from Ofsted.

The Church Lane school had a one-day inspection in November, the first since a full inspection in 2011.

Inspector Diana Choulerton said: “The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection.

“The school is a happy, caring place with a real sense of community. Pupils enjoy coming to school and display high commitment and enthusiasm for learning.

“They work hard and learn well. Friendships flourish across year groups. Pupils of all ages play beautifully together at break and lunchtime. Staff are at hand offering encouragement and joining in when appropriate.”

Ms Choulerton praised headteacher Nick Steele, saying: “Since taking up post in 2013, you have brought much-needed stability following several changes of headteacher in quick succession. You provide effective leadership to a stable and committed staff group.

“You have improved the curriculum, tackled weaker aspects of teaching and have a good grasp of the school’s strengths and priorities for attention. Self-evaluation is honest and development plans suitably focused.”

The school was also rated good in a Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools report in September.
