Ofsted Report 2012

Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

Loatlands Primary is a good school.

  • The good quality of education in the Nursery and Reception classes has been maintained since the previous inspection. Children make good progress because the experience and expertise of the leader ensure teaching is invariably good.
  • Most pupils make good progress in reading and mathematics as they move through the school. They also make good progress in writing, although standards are not quite as high.
  • Good teaching is ensuring that standards in literacy and numeracy are rising. Skilled support staff ensure that disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs make good progress.
  • Behaviour is good in lessons and around school, and pupils feel safe. They enjoy school and this is reflected in their above-average attendance.
  • Leadership and management are good. The staff are working well as a team, inspired by the partnership between the new headteacher and deputy headteacher. Both check thoroughly on the performance of staff and have eliminated most weaknesses in teaching.
  • The governors have much expertise and ask the senior leaders increasingly searching questions about the pace and level of improvement. This is enhancing the school’s good capacity to go on improving.
