Giffards Primary School highly praised by Ofsted

GIFFARDS Primary School in Stanford-le-Hope has been highly praised by Ofsted in their recent inspection.

The Queen Elizabeth Drive school was inspected on March 7th and 8th.

The report states:

1. This is a good and improving school. The headteacher provides strong leadership and she is supported well by an experienced and effective senior leadership team.

2. All groups of pupils make good progress in English and mathematics, and across a wide range of subjects.

3. The quality of teaching is good and improving. Teachers plan well to meet the needs of individual pupils and this helps them to make good progress.

4. Pupils’ behaviour is good, both in the classroom and during breaktimes. Very little learning time is lost as a result of disruptive behaviour.

5. Assessment in subjects other than English and mathematics is not yet fully developed. Leaders do not have clear systems for tracking and monitoring the progress that pupils make.

6. The early years provision is outstanding. From very low starting points, children make rapid progress during the Reception Year. The provision is extremely well led and managed and the quality of teaching in the early years classes is outstanding.

7. Governors know the school well. They are effective in balancing the need to support the school with the requirement to hold leaders to account.

8. Safeguarding is effective. There is very little bullying at the school and, when it does occur, it is dealt with promptly and effectively.
