We are delighted to share with you highlights of our successful recent Ofsted report. Malmesbury continues to be a GOOD school. Thank you for your continued support; we hope you feel as proud of your children as we do.
Here are some of the lead inspector’s findings that reflect the quality of education provided by our school:
We spoke with lots of pupils who all said that they enjoy coming to school. They said that they felt safe at school and that bullying hardly ever happens.
There are strong relationships between pupils and staff.
Leaders, staff and governors have designed a curriculum which gives all pupils a well-rounded education.
Reading has a high priority in the school. Pupils want to read because they enjoy it.
Mathematics is another strength of the school. Pupils build up their knowledge and skills from the early years as they move up the school.
Pupils in all year groups learn a wide range of subjects and achieve well. They benefit from specialist teachers in music, physical education, French… They remember lots of their science learning from the experiments they do.
Teachers take full responsibility for the progress their pupils make. This includes pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities. They receive good support. Teaching assistants know pupils’ needs well. They help pupils to work independently.
Pupils celebrate the diverse nature of the school.
In the early years, staff know what pupils need to learn so that they are ready for Year 1.
Parents and carers agree that their children are safe in school.
