Suffolk school’s praise “well deserved”

Elveden Primary School has been rated ‘good’ by schools inspectors following a period of instability.

The school had previously found itself with three temporary headteachers and poor results but a recent visit by Ofsted found it had significantly improved.

Lead inspector Robert Greatrex praised the school for its management, pupil support and learning.

He said: “Key to the school’s success is the excellent drive and ambition for all pupils to achieve all that they are capable of. Leaders have been single-minded in pursuing high-quality teaching and learning so that pupils’ progress is rapid.”

Lessons were said to be planned “meticulously” and pupils were always “at the cusp of new learning”.

The school was told it could improve further however by providing regular opportunities for pupils to assess their own progress, and to better prepare pupils for life by further developing national and international links.

Head Maria Curry said: “The new staff and existing staff have worked exceptionally hard to bring about change.
