Progress at Woodside School

Osfted Inspection of Woodside School
A team of Ofsted inspectors came to Woodside Primary School, in Grangewood Avenue, Grays on Tuesday and Wednesday 19th and 20th October and their report is published this week.
The inspectors were able to evidence real progress since the school’s last inspection even though that was only in 2008 and it is acknowledged that changes in the inspection guidance make it even more difficult for schools to get the better grades now than it was then.
Although our 2008 inspection was good no areas were found to be outstanding. This time the inspectors were able to identify a number of the many outstanding features of this school;
• Pupil safety,
• Healthy lifestyles,
• Contribution to the school and wider community,
• Spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
The inspectors said:
‘Pupils’ outstanding personal outcomes are reflected in their considerate and sometimes exemplary, behaviour and involvement in the many activities that support the smooth running of the school.’
Headteacher Edward Caines said
“ We were pleased that the inspectors were able to recognize a number of the many outstanding features of Woodside. This is an excellent result for the school and an accolade for staff and pupils.”
The inspection found strong leadership and a good capacity to improve.
