Park Primary was recently inspected on the 5th & 6th May 2016 and we are very pleased to have been awarded the Good School status.
We are very happy to offer you the ability to either download a copy of the 2016 inspection report or you can visit the Ofsted website to view the report there.
“The headteacher, deputy headteacher and assistant headteachers are a strong senior leadership team. They have created a culture where staff work together with a shared vision to provide the very best for every pupil.”
“A wide range of clubs, including street dance, rugby, choir and Change4Life, which are led by school staff and external providers, develop pupils’ social skills and provide opportunities to try something different or further develop their skills. For example, the Apprentice Club challenges pupils to think creatively in order to plan a project that is collaborative, competitive and fun.”
“Well-planned lessons carefully build on what pupils already know to extend and deepen learning.”
“Skilful questioning is used well to check pupils’ understanding, clarify misconceptions and make pupils think for themselves. Teaching assistants provide good support in lessons as they are well directed by the teacher and know what to do.“
“Staff are good role models. This transfers to the way pupils treat each other around school and in lessons. Pupils are polite and respectful to adults and to each other; they feel welcomed and valued. Consequently, pupils enjoy coming to school. Awards are given to each class weekly for ‘Park Child’, ‘Worker of the Week’ and ‘Author of the Week’ This demonstrates a good balance of focus between personal development and academic achievement.”
“Pupils behave sensibly at all times, including when moving around the school, during playtimes and at lunchtimes. They are friendly, polite and courteous. Pupils hold open doors for adults and each other and are very well mannered. Staff are skilled at supporting a small number of pupils who sometimes find it difficult to manage their own behaviour.”
“Good phonics teaching equips pupils with skills to develop their reading and writing. As a result, from their starting points that are below those typical for their age in reading, pupils make good progress. Since the last inspection, the proportion of pupils reaching the expected standard in the Year 1 phonics screening check has been at or above the national average.”

Ofsted encourage parents and carers to give their view of the school and it is useful to have as many honest views as possible.
