Pinchbeck Church of England Primary School gets good rating from Ofsted

A school where children are encouraged to be the ‘best version’ of themselves has been praised by Ofsted inspectors.

Pinchbeck Church of England Primary Academy has been given a ‘good’ rating during a recent inspection with its early years provision getting the highest ‘outstanding’ grade.

The school has come a long way since its last inspection in 2019 when it was given given the ‘requires improvement’ rating prior to becoming an academy.

Inspectors were impressed by the school’s ‘ambitious curriculum’ with early reading being deemed as a ‘strength of the school’ along with how teachers present information to pupils.

The report states that the school is ‘calm and orderly’ and highlighted that teachers will not tolerate poor behaviour or low level disruption.

The school was told to work on the embedding of some foundation subjects which have recently been embedded along with teachers ensuring that children have remembered the knowledge.

It states: “Pupils enjoy attending this school. They describe the school to be a fun place that is inclusive. Pupils say they can speak to someone if they have a concern or a worry. They know they can visit the nurture room to speak to trusted adults. Pupils feel safe and happy here.

“Staff have high expectations of pupils. Pupils rise to these expectations. They know that the school is trying to help them develop as rounded individuals. This work is rooted in the school’s mantra, ‘being the best version of you’.

“Children in the early years get off to the best possible start. Staff in the early years know each child extremely well. They use their knowledge of each child and the early years curriculum to ensure that every moment is spent learning. This means there are no limits or barriers to each child achieving well.

“The overwhelming majority of parents and carers value what the school does for their children.”
