Cawston Primary celebrates Ofsted ‘Good’ ranking
Hard work and commitment have been credited with helping a village school raise its standards. Staff and pupils at Cawston Primary are celebrating this week after receiving a good Ofsted report.
It represents a revival in fortunes for the school which had previously been found to require improvement by the education watchdog.
The school was rated good across the board by inspectors who concluded that teaching had improved and standards risen had in the two years since the last report. Lead inspector Nick Butt praised the school for 'consistently good teaching that ensures that pupils achieve well over time'. A rich curriculum helped pupils enjoy and have a positive attitude to learning .
The report concluded more needed to be done to challenge the most able and that teachers were sometimes not quick enough to adapt the learning to suit pupils' specific needs. The school is now heading for academy status as part of the Diocese of Norwich Education and Academies Trust
Head teacher Kay Swann expressed delight that the school had been graded good in all aspects.
