All Saints Church of England Primary, which is celebrating its 150th anniversary this year is a “warm and welcoming school … highly valued by the community it serves”.
That’s the description of the Clevedon school in its latest Ofsted report, which has just been published.
The two inspectors, who visited for a day in April, say All Saints continues to be a Good school.
They report: “Pupils are happy at All Saints Church of England Primary School. They are proud to be members of the school.
“Leaders and staff have high expectations of pupils’ behaviour and learning. As a result, pupils behave impeccably. They are polite and respectful. Pupils have positive attitudes to their work and enjoy chatting about what they are learning.
“Parents are overwhelmingly positive about the school. They typically comment that ‘the school has a wonderful sense of community and support.’”
The Ofsted team praise the broad and interesting curriculum and say that pupils love to learn because they find learning fun. Children with special educational needs are said to be supported well.
They also highlight the range of opportunities for the 122 pupils to extend their understanding of the world.
“The school is well led by ambitious and committed leaders, including governors. In turn, they are supported effectively by trust leaders. Staff are motivated and morale is high because leaders are considerate of their workload and well-being,” Ofsted report.
To improve further, the inspectors recommends that the school makes changes to record-keeping and assessment processes.
Headteacher Stephen Webber said: “This report comes at a significant time in the history of our school and confirms that we continue to prepare children for a successful future by instilling a lifelong love of learning. I am so proud that the culture of creativity, curiosity and confidence we foster here shone through for the inspectors.”
