Ofsted and SIAMS Report
Our school was once again rated “good” by Ofsted following our two-day inspection, which took place in mid-November 2019. With a newly implemented and highly demanding inspection framework that year, which looks closely at school curriculum provision, this was a really pleasing outcome.
Ofsted recognised the excellent work taking place here at Meole Brace C of E Primary School and Nursery and how: “Pupils enjoy school and they learn a lot”.
The inspector noted how we maintained the “good standard of education” offered to the children and continue to drive improvement, resulting in “positive changes across the school”.
The report also recognised our school’s place “at the heart of the local community” and how our “values of ‘community, respect and perseverance’ weave through the school’s curriculum and ethos.” This recognition combined with the acknowledgement that our children’s behaviour is “good at all times of the day” and that they “look out for one another” was particularly pleasing.
The full report, which highlights many other strengths of the school, as well as areas for further development, was sent to all parents/carers via e-mail and is available below and on the Ofsted website.
We could not have achieved this outcome without all your support, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you, the children, Governors and our dedicated staff for their hard work and commitment. I feel very proud of everything we have achieved together so far and look forward to the school continuing this journey as we strive to provide the children with the best possible starts and opportunities to fulfil their boundless potentials.
