Bromsgrove school celebrates outstanding Ofsted
8:50am Thursday 24th October 2013 in Local
STAFF and pupils at a Bromsgrove school are celebrating after receiving an outstanding Ofsted inspection.
Inspectors visited Stoke Prior First School, in Ryefields Road, on September 25 and 26.
The school has been rated overall as grade one, which is outstanding in Ofsted’s criteria and an improvement on the good rating the school received in its previous inspection.
The quality of teaching, behaviour and safety of pupils, leadership and management and achievement of pupils were all rated as outstanding.
The inspector’s report commented: “Pupils achieve exceptionally well because teaching is consistently good and increasingly outstanding."
The inspectors also praised headteacher, Jan Evans, saying she has a clear plan for the school’s future, while a very strong team approach had been established among the staff.
The only area inspectors pointed out that the school could be improved further was by making sure all pupils are more fully involved in the assessment of their own learning and progress.
The headteacher said: “We are thrilled with the outstanding judgement, which recognises the hard work and dedication of our staff team and the involvement of parents and governors.
“The inspector observed how well the children respond to challenges and how well the children take care of each other.
“We are so proud of them.”
