OFSTED

We are very pleased to share with you the outcome of our recent OFSTED inspection.  The very thorough 2 day inspection has found that Dunton Green Primary is now a “Good” school.

This is a significant achievement due to the current Ofsted Framework being more challenging than previously to become a good or outstanding school.  Please do take some time to read the report as it is very positive about the school and fully recognises the significant improvements under the new leadership of Mrs Boanas.
 
The Inspectors recognised substantial improvements, in the quality of teaching and learning, improved pupil progress throughout the school, behaviour and the varied and broad curriculum.
 
The inspection findings reflect the huge commitment of the school’s staff, Governing Body, children and parents. Parent’s confidence in the school is high and the staff team are united with the head teacher in ensuring that we now continue to grow and build on this achievement and success.
 
We will carefully consider the inspector’s recommendations on how the school can improve further. Our focus in the weeks and months ahead will be on how we continue to raise standards in writing and also tackle the issue of attendance.
 
We would like to thank all parents and carers for your continued support. It is very much appreciated.
 
We are extremely proud that we can deliver highly successful outcomes for the children and how our special unique community provides a safe and nurturing environment.

We congratulate all the staff and the children whose hard work and good behaviour were praised by the inspectors.
