Pytchley Endowed Church of England Primary School in Northamptonshire has received a coveted ‘Good’ Ofsted report following a visit by inspectors in April.
The education watchdog praised the school for promoting a strong culture of inclusion and welcoming all pupils into a caring and nurturing setting.
Headteacher, Mrs Julia Havlickova said: “We’re delighted that Oftsted inspectors have recognised our leadership, quality of teaching and that outcomes for pupils are all good. This is something we’ve been working very hard at for the past several years.
“Our pupils and staff are at the centre of everything we do and we’re particularly proud that inspectors recognised our teachers are developing pupils’ writing skills increasingly effectively, and a high proportion of children are making good progress in English and mathematics.”
Ofsted said that Pytchley pupils enjoy learning and are supportive of each other, while teachers provide effective feedback to parents on their child’s progress. All 30 parents who responded to Ofsted’s Parent View survey said that the school communicated well with them.
Mrs Havlickova added: “As a small school we are able to develop close working relationships with both our pupils and their parents, and all of our students are encouraged to reach their full potential with the support of teaching staff.
“We are also very pleased that Ofted noted our work to promote pupils’ personal development and welfare.”
