AFTER a rigorous two day inspection process which went from the 23rd to 24th November 2016, Corringham Primary was given a clean bill of health as Ofsted inspectors lavished compliments on the rapid journey to “Good” of this very popular Herd Lane school.
“Pupils are happy and enjoy school”.
“Behaviour is good around the school and in lessons”.
“Pupils receive high quality support […] to overcome barriers to learning”.
“The early years provision is good”.
“Pupil welfare is outstanding”.
“The Headteacher’s commitment and vision have been fundamental to the rapid improvement of the school”.
These are but a few of the comments with which Ofsted gave a ringing endorsement of the school which is part of the Corringham-based Stanford & Corringham Schools Trust.
The full Ofsted report can now be found on the school website www.tscst.co.uk/CorringhamPrimary.
Ms Lorna Hamilton, Headteacher of Corringham Primary, said: “We are delighted with our good judgement. It was a very fair and rigorous process. Our staff, students and parents so deserve this accolade for all their hard work over the past two years and we are very proud of our pupils.
Mr Anthony Eatherton, Chair of the Corringham Primary Local Governing Body, said “It is great to see how rapidly standards have risen in the last few years. Governors and the Trust are passionate about providing the best education for children in Corringham. This report shows that our efforts have had the desired impact. Local parents are very pleased indeed”.
Mr Steve Nash, Chairman of the Board of The Stanford & Corringham Schools Trust, said “The report paints a true picture of the ethos of our Trust….that every child, really, truly does matter and that social accomplishments in and out of school are just as important as reading, writing and arithmetic”.
Corringham Primary School, which was lauded for curricular innovation and transformational systemic leadership in the Summer 2016 Parliamentary Review, is one in only four Thurrock schools whose 2016 Key Stage Two results were above national average in all measures (reading, writing, Maths, GPS, Combined).
It is part of The Stanford & Corringham Schools Trust which also comprises Hassenbrook Academy and Gable Hall School and which has Dr Sophina Asong as Chief Executive Officer.
