Woolston Primary committed to improvements
Published Thursday, 19th July 2012
LEADERS at Woolston Community Primary School are confident about raising standards at the school.
Following a recent Ofsted Inspection in June, the school has been given a notice to improve but a programme of improvements is already well underway.
The inspectors highlighted that the headteacher, staff and governors are resolutely focused on improvement and the school is committed to raising standards of attainment and improving achievement.
Recommendations in the report include ensuring introductions to lessons are sharply focused and providing more opportunities for pupils to develop writing skills across the curriculum.
Recently appointed Head teacher Nick Toyne said: “We accept the findings of the report and we remain focused on continuing to make positive changes. I can assure parents that many of the areas that are highlighted for improvement had already been identified and were being addressed. The Ofsted team judged that there had not been enough time for the changes to have a significant impact. Since the inspection we have also implemented other Ofsted recommendations.
The school is also being supported by the local authority during this time.
“As a school we are determined to provide a high quality education in all subject areas for all pupils. We are committed to achieving this goal in a way that is both rapid and sustainable.”
Chair of Governors, Cath Shipton said: “The school has our full support and we are confident that by working with staff, parents and pupils we can make the improvements necessary to take our school forward putting our pupils at the heart of everything we do.”
