Congratulations to St. Oswald's CE Primary School!
I am so pleased to be able to share the news of St. Oswald's recent Ofsted inspection. Inspectors visited the school on the 11-12th May and all judgements - for all aspects of the school's provision have been declared as Good.
Inspectors said the following;
'Pupils thrive at St Oswald’s CofE Primary School. Leaders have high expectations for what all pupils, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities can achieve. Pupils become confident, articulate learners. They dress smartly and are proud of their school. There is a very good range of after school clubs. Pupils benefit from visitors to the school and trips to places of interest, such as local museums.
There is a calm and purposeful atmosphere in classrooms and corridors. Pupils are keen to learn. Their work is varied and interesting, and this helps them to concentrate well in lessons.
Pupils behave responsibly, for example using litter bins and tidying up without being asked. The school provides them with good opportunities for leadership. Older pupils act as role models for younger ones. Pupils get on well with one another, and bullying is infrequent. Staff resolve any disagreements fairly and effectively. Pupils feel safe and happy.
Learning is well planned and covers lots of topics well. Staff are well trained, and they work together as an effective team. This helps them to teach the curriculum effectively, including those elements that are relatively new. Everyone wants to improve the school further.'
