IT IS, as they say, a bit like buses. Earlier this week, we announced that Kennington Primary had been judged as ‘Good” by Ofsted and now they have announced that Aveley Primary has been given the same ranking.
The report stated:
1. Pupils make good progress from starting points which are often well below those typically found. Progress is rapidly improving due to the good teaching.
2. Standards in reading, writing and mathematics are rising and the progress made by pupils has risen consistently for three successive years.
3. The quality of teaching is good with some that is outstanding. Teachers create a purposeful climate in which pupils are encouraged to try their best at all times and to enjoy their learning.
4. The headteacher and senior leaders have had a significant impact on standards by improving teaching and learning across the school. They check very effectively on teachers’ work and provide appropriate training for staff.
5. The gap in progress between those entitled to pupil premium funding and their classmates has narrowed.
6. Pupils’ behaviour in and around the school is good and has a positive impact on their learning. The school takes great care to ensure pupils’ safety.
