Mums and Dads join the celebration at The Trinity

STAFF and pupils at The Trinity CE Primary Academy celebrated their Ofsted report by inviting parents to a creative day on Friday 13th July 2018.


Hannah Allender, Head of Trinity Primary was delighted that after a two day inspection her school was found to be good in all areas.


She said: "We are really pleased with the outcome of the inspection as it is a true reflection of our school."


She was particularly pleased that the inspectors were pleased with the way pupils conducted themselves around the school and reported:


"They are polite and courteous to adults and work and play co-operatively with each other.


"They noted that one pupil told them: "I like it in school because it’s like one big happy family with lots of brothers and sisters."


The inspectors also found that pupils felt safe and secure and said: "There are positive and trusting relationships between pupils and staff. Teachers and support staff are very committed to pupils’ care and well-being."


They also praised the school's curriculum and enrichment activities which extended their knowledge, understanding and skills.


So it was fitting that the school held a creative day to mark the report. Children made mosaics and stained glass windows and were joined by parents for the activities and a picnic lunch.


The report found the school had good leadership and that quality of teaching, learning and assessment along with pupils' achievements were improving.


Pupils' progress at the end of key stage 2 was well above the national average and lessons for children with special educational needs were well planned.


To improve further the school was told it needs to ensure that teachers continue to address the quality of teaching, learning and assessment to make sure pupils' attainment and progress are strong across the school.


Most able children in reception need to be challenged so they achieve standards above expectations and teachers need to plan maths activities to allow pupils to develop problem-solving and reasoning skills with increasing accuracy and confidence.


The report also said the school should: "Further develop pupils’ ability to use spelling rules and patterns accurately when writing, especially for lower-ability and middle-ability pupils."
