PUPILS and staff are proud of Pawlett Primary School Academy following a recent Ofsted inspection found they were ‘good’ in all areas.

Inspectors noted "respect was at the heart of the school" and "pupils feel safe and are happy".

They also highlighted pupils’ reading, the school curriculum, provision for pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) who learn alongside their peers.

The report added: “The school supports teachers well. Teachers are positive about The Priory Learning Trust’s work to improve their skills.

"They benefit from working with colleagues from other schools and trust specialists to deepen their subject knowledge.”

Principal Emma Barker said: "“We are over the moon with this result.

"All the hard work we do is always with our children at the heart of it and it is brilliant this has been recognised and validated.”

The school continues on its improvement journey making further improvements where needed.

“Every school is on a journey and we will continue ours to make it even better,” added Ms Barker.

Lisa Dodds, director of primary education and standards, said: "We are delighted with how well our inspection went.

"The love and care that is shown day in day out at Pawlett is clear to see and the children, staff and community is thriving.”

Pawlett Primary School Academy is part of The Priory Learning Trust.

The school will have tours for parents, carers and families on Thursday (November 9) at 3.30pm.
