Stanwick Primary School celebrates 'GOOD' Ofsted rating

Pupils and staff at Stanwick Primary School are celebrating after receiving a ‘GOOD’ rating from Ofsted.

During a recent inspection by the education watchdog, the school was praised for providing “a calm, friendly atmosphere in which to learn”, and commenting that “the curriculum is broad and balanced” and “the full range of subjects is taught.” “Senior leaders have an accurate view of the school. They have wasted no time in bringing about improvements to teaching and leadership”.

The school is part of the Nene Education Trust. The inspector noted that “Trustees and members of the local governing body demonstrate high ambition for the school. They have provided effective support for leaders this year”.

For any parents considering Stanwick for their children, they can be assured by the inspector’s comment that “Most parents speak highly of the work of the school and would recommend the school to others”. “Children get off to a good start in the early years. The quality of teaching is good in the Reception class and the children are well placed to start Year 1.”

“Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) are supported well to learn alongside their peers”.
