Staff and pupils at Flamborough Church of England Primary School are celebrating a double dose of good news this term.
The school has recently been inspected by Ofsted and the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) and both classed the school as ‘Good’.
The Ofsted report, from April 26, reads: “The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. The staff have created an inclusive ethos where pupils’ academic and personal development are equally important.”
Headteacher Maxine Blackburn said: “We are very proud of our school and are immensely pleased with the results which recognises the hard work that goes on to ensure the pupils receive the best education and experiences possible.”
Inspector Michael Reeves said: “The school has successfully tackled the two areas identified for improvement at the previous inspection. First, pupils’ progress in writing has improved over the last three years, and in 2015 it was significantly above that found nationally. Learning activities are now providing greater challenge for the most able writers.
“The second area for improvement has also been tackled and leaders have accurately evaluated the school’s effectiveness using a range of information. The school development plan is clearly linked to priorities to further improve pupils’ outcomes.”
The school also earned a Good rating from SIAMS following an inspection on May 23. The report read: “Although there have been significant changes in the leadership of the school, the school’s distinctive character has been maintained. The vision for the school as a church school is very clearly stated in the school’s documentation, and lived out in the lives of children and adults in school.”
