Congratulations to Netherton CE Primary School
On the 29th and 30th March, Netherton received a visit from Ofsted. The inspector spent two days examining all aspects of the school's provision and came to the conclusion that Netherton CE Primary School remains a Good school.
Leasers were praised for adopting an ambitious curriculum and providing exciting extra-curricular opportunities for all pupils.
The report highlighted the following;
'All pupils are welcomed and included in the life of the school. Children from the age of two make a good start in the early years and pupils continue to be well cared for as they grow older. Adults know children very well. They engage positively with families and work hard to promote pupils’ well-being.
The majority of pupils are happy and proud of their school. They get on well together. They treat each other with respect and kindness Bullying is rare. Pupils' playground behaviour is mostly positive but sometimes games become too boisterous. Some pupils say that this has a negative impact on them having fun at lunchtime.
Leaders have worked hard to ensure that curriculum leaders know how to plan their subjects well. Curriculum leaders have used this knowledge to design a curriculum that is ambitious for all pupils. This work has included setting out the essential information that leaders expect pupils to know and remember. Teachers present this information in a logical order. For instance, in geography, children in the early years start to draw simple maps. This means they are ready to learn about more complex features of maps in Year 1.'
