OFSTED: Claytons Primary School is a ‘GOOD’ School

Find our 3rd & 4th July 2023 OFSTED report here

As you are aware, we were inspected by Ofsted on 3rd and 4th July 2023. I am delighted to be able to share the official outcome of our inspection, we have been graded as ‘Good’ in all areas. 

This was a graded inspection, which means they look in detail at the full Ofsted’s framework. To achieve good in all areas is a fantastic achievement.

Pupils are cared for and well supported at this nurturing village school.

Leaders are passionate about success for all pupils

Teachers have high expectations

During the verbal feedback, from the inspectors, we were found to be extremely strong in all areas.

Leadership and Management, as well as Early Years, were extremely close to being graded outstanding which we are delighted about.

We could not have done this without the continued drive, commitment and unwavering support of all stakeholders of the school.

Of course, there are always areas to develop, however, we knew what these were going to be before OFSTED arrived, and are happy their visit confirmed our views.   The team were seasoned professionals and were interested in the plans we had already made to start to address our learning points, more about this will be shared at the meet the teacher evening on 20/09/23.

This report is something for the whole school community to feel very proud of :)

A message from our Chair of Governors, Lisa Fleming: As Governors we are delighted that the report reflects what we know about the school, that the staff, pupils and parents work together for the benefit of all.  Listening to the verbal report before the Summer holidays was uplifting, and while the final report is always less effusive – the OFSTED machine feel it has to standardise the reports – the high standard of grading Claytons has received across the board is testament to the hard work and dedication of the whole team.  Thank you to the staff, pupils and parents.
