We are extremely proud to announce that following the school’s latest Ofsted inspection in July 2023, Stadhampton Primary School continues to be officially rated as a GOOD school in all areas.
During their visit in July, the inspection team found that:
‘Staff and pupils foster a family ethos purposefully where everyone feels happy, safe and included’ and that ‘Pupils flourish in their happy and welcoming school. ‘
The report went on to recognise how well children with SEND are supported and the value placed on reading by the school.
The wider development of our children shines through in the report.
‘Staff deliver a carefully crafted personal, social and health education curriculum to develop pupils’ understanding of relevant moral and social issues. Leaders ensure that a wide range of clubs, visits and enriching activities contribute to the development of pupils’ talents and interests.’
In addition, the report states that:
‘Leaders prioritise pupils’ physical and mental health and well-being. Pupils make excellent use of the outdoor space during social times. Carefully chosen equipment encourages pupils to develop balance, throwing and catching skills and teamwork through collaborative play. Leaders’ innovative approach to the annual ‘sports evening’ ensures that families come together to spectate, compete, celebrate and build relationships as a community.’
Commenting on Ofsted’s findings, Headteacher, Emma Charnock said:
“This report recognises the tremendous effort everyone has made to ensure Stadhampton Primary School is a place where children grow and thrive. I am delighted that the inspection recognises the dedication of the cohesive staff team and the tireless work they put in to making our school such a happy place to be. I am immensely proud of what we have all achieved together.”
