Sybourn Primary School - Ofsted Inspection

Following the Short inspection of Sybourn Primary School on 21 May 2019, we are delighted that we can confirm the school continues to be a 'good' school. 

Here's a few highlights from our inspection letter, that can be found here

Safeguarding is Effective: 'Leaders have robust procedures in place for safer recruitment and for the induction of new staff and trustees, so that all those who work in and visit the school understand their
safeguarding responsibilities.' 'Pupils told me that they feel safe at school and that adults care about them'.

The impact of Leaders: 'Leaders track and analyse progress data effectively to ensure that pupils are achieving well'  'the teaching of phonics is a strength of the school; lessons ensure that pupils apply their phonics skills effectively to their reading'

Pupils’ writing outcomes in key stage 2, particularly those of boys: ' Teachers and teaching assistants question and assess pupils’ understanding effectively. This ensures that the teaching of writing is adapted to match pupils’ needs.' 'Year 6 pupils told inspectors that teachers’ feedback is useful in improving the quality of their writing.'

Outcomes for pupils in the wider curriculum and, specifically, whether pupils’ progress in other subjects is as strong as that found in reading, writing and mathematics: 'Work in pupils’ topic books shows that teaching and the curriculum are effective in supporting their progression in subject specific skills and knowledge.' 'the positive effect of the changes you have made to the curriculum is evident in the quality of pupils’ work.'
