‘Good’ Wisbech primary school celebrates glowing report
Staff at a Wisbech primary school have been given a glowing report after a visit from Ofsted inspectors.
Peckover Primary School retains its good rating following a visit from the team on March 17.
Staff and pupils are celebrating the positive report, which praises the school for raising attendance with an interesting curriculum and helping to give reception children the best start.
While being praised for addressing areas of improvement raised in the last report, the school was also advised to work on helping disadvantaged pupils catch up, ensure all youngsters make consistent strong progress and to promote literacy in other subjects.
Principal Carrie Norman is pleased with the report.
She said: “This is an incredibly positive report and I am very proud of my staff whose hard work and commitment makes our school a vibrant learning community.
“Their strong teamwork has been highlighted as well as their motivation and enthusiasm.
“We are thrilled by what we have achieved so far and look forward to working together with the governing body and Brooke Weston Trust to ensure that Peckover Primary School goes from strength to strength.”
The report states that levels of challenge in Years 5 and 6 are high but youngsters are making rapid progress in Key Stage 2.
It states: “Your success and creativity in continuously improving the school and in tackling the issues raised at the last inspection show that you are well placed to realise your aim of making Peckover equally strong throughout.
“For example, you have ensured that children in the early years get off to a better start by using resources, including staff, more effectively.
“You have successfully raised attendance by making the curriculum more exciting.
“You have matched pupils’ work more closely to their needs by using assessment more diagnostically.
“These improvements are underpinned by staff who work very well together and who value opportunities to learn from others.
“Inspirational leadership and very efficient and effective management are contributory factors.”
