I am delighted to report that Kennet Valley Primary School has now been graded ‘good’ following a visit by Ofsted inspectors in April 2016. The school was judged to be good in all five areas of inspection:

  • The effectiveness of leadership and management;
  • The quality of teaching learning and assessment;
  • Personal development, behaviour and welfare;
  • Outcomes for pupils and
  • Early Years provision.

    The latest report shows that the school has taken effective steps to drive up standards and create what the inspector describes as a cohesive learning community.

    Teachers are praised for their lively and interesting lessons. There is praise too for governors who have played a major part in driving up improvements to provision. Inspectors recognised the strong contribution to pupils’ learning made by our skilled Learning Support Assistants. The inspectors found opportunities to appreciate the high level of pupil enthusiasm for Forest School and the positive social occasion that is our Breakfast Club.

    We are immensely proud of the children at Kennet Valley Primary School and delighted that the inspectors have noted the many reasons why we are right feel this way. Our children are described as friendly, polite and sensible and show good manners around the school. Furthermore pupils enjoy learning... and are keen to succeed. You will find much more about our wonderful pupils in the report itself.

    As well as celebrating the successes of the school, we recognise that we can continue to improve.  We are confident that we can benefit from this report from OFSTED in order to refine our plans for the future and increase the rate at which we are improving. We fully accept the advice that Ofsted has provided to enable us to become an outstanding school and our journey on this path has already started.
