Broughton Primary School is celebrating after receiving a good report from Ofsted.

The school continues to be good with outstanding features.

Anna Bewsher, headteacher said: “I feel extremely privileged to be headteacher of Broughton Primary School. After only becoming headteacher nine weeks prior to receiving our Ofsted phonecall, I did feel quite anxious about the process, but was also confident that inspectors would recognise the good work that goes on.

“I feel that the Ofsted inspectors did a wonderful job of capturing the true ethos of our school. They recognised how well-mannered, caring and enthusiastic our pupils are which is incredibly important to us. They also acknowledged the hard-work and dedication of all members of our team at Broughton Primary and made constant reference to our high expectations for our pupils and the nurturing and care that we also provide.”

Inspectors said pupils enjoy coming to school. They added: “They find learning interesting and say that everyone is happy and friendly. As a result, pupils are articulate, well mannered, cheerful and have ambitious plans for the future. The school’s motto, ‘ABLE –Achieve, Believe, Learn, Enjoy’, is seen in action throughout the school as children strive to do their very best.”

They said pupils achieve well in school, academically and personally, behave well, are considerate of others and are well prepared for their next steps and to contribute positively to their community.

Ofsted said the curriculum at the school is well planned in many subjects, such as reading, writing, mathematics and physical education.

“Teachers are working apace to ensure that pupils receive the highest quality of learning across the foundation subjects, including art and design technology.

“Pupils are taught about respect, tolerance, liberty, rule of law and democracy. They understand what it means to accept others, regardless of differences. Pupils know how important it is to attend school regularly and do not like to miss any school days because they find learning fun”, inspectors added.
