Leafield celebrates Ofsted success
Leafield CE Primary School is celebrating a 'Good' Ofsted report, following it's first inspection since joining ODST.
Ofsted reported that pupils 'brim with confidence'... they 'enjoy assemblies because each other’s skills are shared and celebrated. Everyone shares a well-justified pride in their school.' They found that pupils feel 'safe and valued', bullying is very rare, and behaviour is 'impressive'.
The report praises the school's high-quality teaching, strong leadership and 'team ethic'. Inspectors found the school’s curriculum to be 'organised well and enhanced by memorable experiences' such as pupils recalling a geologist's visit.
They also found that despite the small school site, 'use of local facilities enhances pupils’ physical education opportunities. Strong links with other schools mean that pupils compete regularly. They enjoy a variety of team sports.'
Leafield was one of the first schools to be inspected under Ofsted's new framework.
