Woodhill Primary School was inspected on Tuesday 12th and Wednesday 13th of July 2016. We are pleased to share that our report has now been published and Woodhill Primary School has been judged to be a Good school. This is a huge achievement for the school and the community given that for over a decade the school has been judged to require improvement.
Over the last two years’ transformational changes have taken place at the school since it became part of the Inspire Partnership. The drive of the new leadership team and the dedication of all staff has ensured that the quality of teaching has rapidly improved and has led to significantly improved pupil outcomes.
We are delighted that the report recognises many of these remarkable changes:
‘The executive leadership has significantly improved the school since the last inspection’
‘Pupils’ personal development and welfare are outstanding’
‘Teachers provide pupils with well-planned and interesting activities. As a result, pupils’ progress has accelerated since the previous inspection’
‘A strength of the school is the warm relationships between pupils and staff. Pupils respond well to challenging activities and instructions. Consequently, classrooms have a strong, productive atmosphere in which pupils enjoy their learning’
‘Children have an exciting and stimulating start to their school life in the early years. Activities are well designed and encourage children to make good progress’
As a highly ambitious school, naturally we will be ensuring that the next steps form part of our school priorities for this academic year and look forward to sharing these with our school community in the coming weeks.
Whilst we are pleased with the outcome of the inspection we recognise that the judgements made only reflect a snapshot in time of the school’s work. It is the ongoing feedback we receive from parents and children that we truly value, which enables us to ensure we provide the children of Woodhill Primary School with the very best education.
