Headteacher of Brimble Hill Primary School Alison Paul is delighted to have received an overall rating of good following the school’s recent Ofsted inspection.
Commenting on the result she said: “The staff worked really hard under what is a much more challenging new inspection framework.
“The last time we were inspected in June 2010 we achieved a satisfactory rating. But this rating no longer exists. Under the new framework more regular inspections will be required for a school achieving a category less than good.”
Behaviour and safety now outstanding
Alison is particularly pleased that the school’s rating for behaviour and safety has gone from good to outstanding.
Attributing this to the overall ethos of the school Alison said: “We’ve also been able to improve the quality of the teaching by becoming more focussed on individuals and small groups.”
Commended for increased links with the community
The inspector’s report also commended the school on its increased links with the community and the prudent use of external professional resources to boost the provision that the school is able to offer.
