A Worcestershire school is celebrating a glowing Ofsted report.

Flyford Flavell Primary School was given an overall grading of “Good” in its most recent Ofsted report, released on January 6.

Headteacher Rosalind Bennett is delighted with the report, given the difficulties the education sector has faced.

She said: “It is lovely to get such recognition of how well all of our pupils are performing and to get confirmation that our parental body is happy with their children’s academic achievement and personal development as a result of this knowledge.

“I am exceptionally proud to be a part of such a lovely group of staff who deserve this recognition.”

Ofsted inspectors Lynda Townsend and Barry Yeardsley visited the school in November, four years after the school’s previous inspection in 2016, when it was received a “Good” grade.

The report read: “Pupils are at the heart of this inclusive village school. Relationships are strong. The headteacher and staff know every pupil well.

“The school motto of ‘learning for life’ runs throughout the school. Leaders have high expectations that all pupils become ‘independent learners and thinkers’.

“Pupils enjoy coming to school. They are happy and feel safe. They know that adults care and look after them. Pupils are polite, confident and mature. They enjoy each other’s company and act with kindness. Everyone looks out for each other.”

While the report was largely positive, the inspectors did note one improvement that could be made.

The report states: “Subject leaders do not closely monitor the implementation of the school curriculum.

“This means that, on occasions, curriculum plans are not delivered consistently well. School leaders have identified that subject leadership is an area for development and have planned training to improve subject leaders’ skills and knowledge.

“Leaders need to ensure that subject leaders have the skills and knowledge to monitor their subject effectively and make continued improvements.”
