Judged Outstanding by Ofsted

We are delighted to announce that Coleridge Primary school has been judged to be Outstanding by Ofsted. The leaders, teachers, children and their families have worked tirelessly over the past 4 years to ensure that the school provides the best education and community support possible. We are thrilled that the Ofsted team noticed how well we work as a team to ensure that our pupils get the very best educational offer.

The curriculum has been created over the past 2 years and is a labour of love from all subject leaders and it was described as ‘rare in its scope and ambition.’ Ofsted also commented on the high-quality work that pupils produced and stated, ‘the work produced by pupils is superb. Pupils remember what they have learned, for example about ancient civilisations in history. This is because teachers make regular checks on pupils learning.’

We have always known for a long period of time that our pupil’s behaviour is exemplary. We have also promoted that the values of being kind and a good person will take you far in life and our pupils show these qualities on a daily basis. The OFSTED report comments that ‘ The conduct and behaviour of pupils at this school are superb. This is because the golden rules are threaded through every aspect of school life. Every child has a voice and knows that their opinion is valued. Pupils are incredibly excited to come to school.’

This judgment is a testament to all the members of staff that have supported us over the past 4 years and the countless external support visits that have helped move the school forward. We are indebted to CLPT for the constant support, encouragement and guidance, without them, this would not have been possible. We are excited to continue on our journey and want to ensure that our school keeps standing out by delivering the best education for our pupils.
