Trinity Rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted in All Areas

Trinity School have this week been awarded ‘Good’ from their Ofsted inspection.

The inspection was carried out on 4 and 5 December last year, just 12 weeks from the new Headteacher, Charlotte Whittle starting in September.

Charlotte was previously Assistant Headteacher and Headteacher at Stoke Row primary school for 12 years.  The school was graded ‘Outstanding’ in 2016.  Charlotte said, “We are delighted and pleased that we got ‘Good’ in all categories. I believe this was a fair and balanced judgement based on the evidence presented on the day and also in line with our school’s self-evaluation. Schools were judged on a very different framework in 2016 when we had our last graded Ofsted inspection. The new Ofsted framework requires strict evidence for every statement in the ‘Outstanding’ criteria and some aspects of this new framework were not yet consistently implemented or evidenced.”

Charlotte was particularly proud of the key extracts which reflects their school vision and motto of ‘Who is my neighbour?’

“This is a happy, inclusive and nurturing school where pupils behave well. Everyone feels safe and highly valued.”

“Pastoral care is a strength. From the nurture breakfast to therapeutic sessions at lunchtime, help is always there when pupils need it.”

“The school’s approach to reading is inspirational for pupils. Across all ages there is passion for books.”

“Learning behaviour starts superbly in early years, where children show sustained concentration and high engagement. Across the school, pupils talk about their learning with enthusiasm and pride, reflecting the strong nurture and well considered support.”

Charlotte added, “We continue to strive to be ‘Outstanding’ under the new Ofsted framework.  We are focused on nurturing all of our children and giving them the opportunities to flourish and develop as well-rounded individuals with a love of learning.”
