Isaac Newton Primary School is a 'Good’ school says Ofsted
Ofsted Inspectors visited Isaac Newton Primary School on 13th and 14th September 2017.
Ofsted reported, “The Headteacher, supported well by senior leaders, has improved all aspects of the school. Leaders share a common vision of aspiration and high attainment for all pupils.
“The quality of teaching, learning and assessment is good. Leaders and governors ensure that the frequent monitoring of teaching standards and pupils’ attainment leads to pupils making good progress across the curriculum.”
Ofsted added, “The trust has provided good support to school leaders and governors. Team leaders, in particular, welcome professional development and the opportunity to moderate pupils’ work with other schools.”
They also conveyed that Leaders responsible for the early years and for pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities are knowledgeable and ensure that these pupils make good progress.
Head Teacher of Isaac Newton School, Paul Hill, said “As a school we have known that we are providing the pupils with a great education for some time and it is fantastic that OFSTED have recognised this. Since arriving in January 2014 it has been obvious that the school has an extremely talented and dedicated staff and I am delighted that this is made clear within the report.”
Peter Bell, CEO of C.I.T. said, “I am delighted that the hard work by all the staff, governors, pupils and leadership from Paul Hill, has been duly recognised by a grade of ‘Good’ and a fabulous Ofsted report.”
Ofsted inspectors were impressed with the schools warm and welcoming environment that celebrates pupils’ successes through displays in classrooms and corridors. The school is highly inclusive, and all feel valued and welcome.
