Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills, which inspect and regulate services which care for children and young people, and those providing education and skills for learners of all ages.
We are extremely proud of our report from our Ofsted inspection on 31st October 2017.
The letter from our inspector makes it clear that ‘The school continues to be good’ and is very positive about the experiences children receive at Newbridge Junior School.
Below are some quotes from the letter that we were sent from Ofsted:
“Pupils enjoy school”
“They talk enthusiastically about the work they do at school and the range of activities they undertake”
“Pupils now have a good knowledge of what they need to do to improve their work”
“Pupils talk knowledgeably about their next steps to success”
“Pupils are now making rapid progress in writing”
“Boys are now achieving at least as well as girls … above the National average for all pupils”
“Leaders have ensured that pupils are given plenty of opportunities to come together through shared activities to secure the ethos and identity of the school”
“Pupils feel safe and have a good understanding of how to keep themselves safe in a variety of situations”
“Pupils describe the staff as caring and are confident about speaking to them if they have any concerns”
“Parents agreed that their children are happy, safe and well looked after in school”
“Leaders have been relentless in their quest to improve attendance. As a result, pupils’ attendance has risen for the last three years”
School Performance Tables
School Performance Tables are published by the Secretary of State on the Department for Education’s website. The Tables give information on the achievement and attainment of pupils and include information on finance, absence, school workforce and the most recent Ofsted reports.
The attainment and progress data in the Tables is designed to be considered alongside other sources of information such as Ofsted reports and school prospectuses.
