Wrington Primary School year six pupils performance the whole school watching.


An ‘outstanding’ primary school has been praised for its ‘polite’ pupils by Ofsted inspectors.

Wrington Primary School said it was ‘very pleased’ to receive the highest rating after the education watchdog paid a visit to the School Road site.

At its last inspection in 2010, the school was rated ‘good’ and was told to improve pupils’ progress in maths, ensure teachers set work at the right level of difficulty for each pupil and encourage childen to learn more about cultural diversity.

This time around though, the inspector’s report said the school gave its pupils a ‘flying start’ in life and praised its ‘outstanding’ teaching and ‘excellent’ curriculum.

The report said: “Pupils achieve exceptionally well academically, personally, physically and creatively. Children get off to a flying start in the early years.

“The excellent curriculum provides many exciting and memorable experiences, which spark pupils’ enthusiasm for learning.

“Outstanding teaching enables pupils to make outstanding progress in reading, writing and maths.

“Teachers have high expectations and they plan work skilfully to ensure all pupils are very clear about what is expected of them.

“Pupils become confident, polite and courteous young people. They are confident learners who enjoy school and show a strong desire to do well.

“Staff and pupils show enormous respect for each other and much is done to promote a family feel within the school.”
