Sunning Hill primary rated as 'outstanding' by Ofsted inspectors
WHEN it comes to learning, these bright youngsters cannot get enough of it.
Sunning Hill Primary School has been found to be a vibrant place where its children develop a “thirst for learning” and go on to achieve high standards.
Ofsted inspectors marked the school as outstanding — the highest possible mark the government’s education watchdog can give to a school.
The school’s achievement is even more remarkable given that the children start school with a low skill base.
All areas of the school — achievement of pupils, quality of teaching, behaviour and safety of pupils and leadership and management — received the coveted one mark.
Ofsted inspectors reported: “Children start school with skills that are below those typically expected for their age. They make rapid progress in the reception classes and achieve well.”
Pupils were described as a “exceptionally courteous, friendly and welcoming” and proud of their work.
Headteacher Sandra Kelly was also singled out for praise.
The report stated: “The headteacher’s ambition and drive have ensured the school is constantly improving. A shared vision is pervasive throughout the school.”
Governors were praised for challenging the school and holding it to account in a “supportive manner”.
Mrs Kelly said: “All members of the school community are delighted with the judgements of the recent Ofsted inspection. We are very fortunate to have enthusiastic pupils, supportive parents and governors and a dedicated staff team.
“Through a shared vision we have worked hard together to develop a vibrant learning community of which we are very proud.”
