Yeo Moor Primary is a happy and harmonious school where children feel safe and learn well. That’s the verdict of Ofsted inspectors who visited the Clevedon school in June and judged it to be “Good” in all areas.
Their report praised:
- the exciting, well-designed curriculum
- respectful and caring relationships
- high expectations of pupil behaviour
- leaders’ clear vision.
The Ofsted team rated Yeo Moor as “Good” for quality of education, behaviour and attitudes, personal development, leadership and management and early years provision.
They noted that parents and carers spoke highly of the 365-pupil school, commenting on the effective teaching, caring staff, and inspiring lessons. “Pupils love to learn at Yeo Moor Primary School … Pupils gain and retain knowledge because they are well taught,” the Ofsted report, published at the end of the last academic year, said Inspectors highlighted the priority given to reading at the heart of the curriculum, “Pupils enjoy choosing books from the school’s well stocked library. Pupils leave primary school with a love of reading and the ability to read with fluency and confidence,” the report said.
The inspectors said that to improve further the school should tighten up support for children with special educational needs or disabilities and ensure all staff had high expectations of pupils’ attitudes to learning.
Headteacher Roland Lovatt said: “I am very grateful to our staff team who have worked hard to earn this glowing report from Ofsted. I am also extremely proud of our children, who spoke to the inspectors with confidence and enthusiasm. Our children have shown excellent attitudes all year round as they develop into young people equipped to excel in a modern and diverse world.”
