Local school judged “Good”

Ofsted have judged Brockhampton Primary School to be “Good” in all areas following their latest inspection in July.

Placed in “Special Measures” in 2016, Ofsted schedule a maximum of five termly visits to move it out of this lowest category; Brockhampton has achieved it in three and taken only eighteen months to do so.

Inspectors reported that since the previous inspection, “the quality of teaching and learning has improved considerably” and that across the school “teaching is good…pupils make good progress and academic standards at the end of Key Stages 1 and 2 are above average.” They also commented on improvements to attendance, punctuality, subject leadership and that children feel safe with “considerate behaviour the norm.”

The whole school community is naturally delighted with the outcome and are looking forward to moving the school on to even bigger and better things. Visitors are always more than welcome to see the school in action. For further information on the school visit their website.
