CORRINGHAM primary school is one of the big success stories of Thurrock education over the last few years.
A few years ago, the school was struggling. It was described a “Not fit for purpose”. But since being led by headteacher, Lorna Hamilton and in partnership with the Stanford and Corringham Schools Trust, the school has made the most incredible leaps and bounds.
In 2016, the school was chosen to be part of a government study to highlight how remarkable improvements are made.
Even at the weekend, the school was well represented at the Thurrock Education Awards.
Corringham Primary appears to be a great celebration of learning.
Just take a look at a few of the comments from last year’s Ofsted report.
1.The headteacher, the Trust, other leaders and staff are making important changes to improve the school. As a result, teaching is improving and pupils are making faster progress.
2. Leaders and managers place considerable emphasis on improving the quality of teaching. Inadequate teaching from when the academy opened has been eradicated.
3. Senior leaders and external consultants regularly check teaching. Teachers receive clear feedback to help them improve their classroom practice and skills. Effective coaching, support and the opportunity to observe teaching in other schools contribute to better teaching.
4. Teachers establish good relationships with the pupils and manage them well. In most classes, teachers provide clear instructions and explanations to promote pupils’ learning. Where learning is effective, teachers use questioning well to challenge pupils’ thinking and to check that they have understood the work.
