Bishop’s Primary School has achieved ‘Good’ in its Ofsted report published on 8th December 2022.
Opening the report, the inspector says that “Pupils enjoy being at school. They feel safe, happy and well looked after”.
“They quickly get used to routines and develop strong relationships with each other and adults.”
“Pupils are kind to each other and make everyone feel welcome. They would be very surprised to hear any inappropriate, prejudicial language..”
The inspector praised the school for the reflection of the LIGHT value within the school “The school’s LIGHT values of love, inclusivity, goodness, hope and truth reflect the
expectations staff have for pupils.”
Other highlights included that “Leaders have designed a curriculum to engage and inspire pupils. Teachers use recall, research and reasoning strategies to help pupils to become curious, independent learners.”
Areas that could be improved included the processes for the implementation of some foundation subjects is not precise enough.
“The report is very positive and we are thrilled that it captures the school so well. We have been given only one area for improvement, relating to precision in our curriculum. I would like to take the opportunity to thank and congratulate the staff on their hard work and continued support for the children and families in this community. For me, the following comments in the report are the ‘headlines’: ‘Pupils enjoy being at school. They feel safe, happy and well looked after.’ ‘Leaders have designed a curriculum to engage and inspire pupils’ ‘The excellent links between school and home create a strong community feel’ ‘Staff feel valued; there is a tangible feel of collective responsibility running through the staff team’ As a community we deserve to celebrate this report and be proud of our school”
