Eynesbury C of E School is 'Outstanding'!

Author: NRHill Published: 16th July 2010 18:47

Outstanding School ends school year on a high.

 

A diocesan church inspector who visited Eynesbury C of E Primary school last week found the school “Outstanding” in all areas inspected. The school, which was recently inspected by OFSTED, was found to be “a welcoming and friendly school”, to which “a number of pupils travel from out of catchment because of the school’s excellent reputation…”

The school has a strong Christian ethos, with inclusiveness as a priority and where “all pupils are nurtured as individuals, and staff and pupils treat one another with mutual respect.” Among the school’s strengths are the fact that “Staff know each child and strive to ensure everyone achieves their full potential… Lessons are differentiated and supported to meet the various needs, and the curriculum is enhanced with strategies including whole weeks devoted to subjects such as art or science, and a range of extra-curricular activities. The school has free access to the church, and classes use it as a quiet, reflective environment to bring a spiritual dimension across the curriculum.

Music is a real strength and many pupils sing with the choir or play in the orchestra. They participate in concerts for the local and wider communities, performing alone and alongside musicians from other schools and with adults from the local area.

Responsibility is given from an early age, culminating in play leadership and organising the worship space in Year Six. Each class is represented on the school council and their opinion is valued.

Achievements are celebrated each week with awards for living by Christian values as well as for academic or sporting success.”

 

In the school’s recent OFSTED inspection, inspectors found that the parent questionnaires produced the most positive response the team had ever encountered. This is also borne-out by the church inspection, which found that, “Parents are only complimentary about the school and the care given to each individual child. They value the open relationship with staff, who are always willing to listen. The active parents’ association raises funds for the school and helps pupils in fundraising for local and global charities.”

 

Head teacher, Mrs Helen Rouse, said: “We are delighted to have been recognised for our true strengths. Alongside an emphasis on academic learning, we believe in a holistic approach to the education of each child, as an individual and a member of our wider society. Rather than focusing on teaching ‘to the test’, we believe that all pupils are equally valued and that everyone has a gift or talent to share.”
