Northwood Community Primary School retain ‘Good’ Ofsted judgement

by Laura Johnston

Northwood Community Primary School in Kirkby has maintained its ‘Good’ Ofsted judgement, following an inspection last month.

The school includes a designated special provision, with parents describing the school as adopting an ethos of ‘no child is left behind.’

Inspectors noted that pupils achieve well with teachers putting in place a range of support to help pupils to achieve their best, including the provision of extra curricular clubs such as musical theatre. In addition, a range of planned trips are organised which help to develop pupil’s independence and confidence, as well as deepen their learning.

Pupil behaviour was also highlighted as a strength, as well as school leaders delivering a broad and interesting curriculum with reading being a key priority for the school and pupils developing as enthusiastic readers.

Teachers ensure that pupils revisit and build on their previous learning and staff feel valued and supported by leaders with opportunities for staff to develop their expertise across the curriculum.

Cllr Margaret Harvey, Cabinet Member for Children’s Services, said “This is a fantastic Ofsted inspection report, with staff and parents feeling supported. This in turn is helping pupils to achieve their very best and pupils telling Inspectors that they enjoy school. Well done and keep up the good work!”
