A school has been rated good following a recent inspection by Ofsted inspectors.
Windmill Primary School in Raunds has been judged as good in all areas from its leadership and management to the quality of teaching and achievement of pupils.
We will dig deep in order to become an outstanding school.Principal Michelle Ginn
This inspection was the school’s first since becoming an Education Fellowship academy in May 2013, at which time the school required improvement.
Following the recent inspection, Ofsted said the academy is led and managed well, is improving continuously and leaders are working well with the academy trust to raise achievement.
They said pupils are aware of how much the academy has improved and good teaching has enabled many pupils to make rapid progress in filling previous gaps in their learning.
The report noted that teachers have good subject knowledge and communicate well with pupils, students’ behaviour is good, attitudes to learning are positive and the rate of attendance is above average.
Principal Michelle Ginn said: “We are very pleased that the Ofsted inspection recognised all the hard work that the entire school community of staff, governors, pupils and families, together with our sponsor The Education Fellowship, have put into improving Windmill Primary School.
“We take on board all the areas for improvement that they have identified and will dig deep in order to become an outstanding school.”
Lizzie Rowe, deputy CEO of the Education Fellowship, said: “We’re very proud of what has been achieved so far at Windmill and are confident that by the time the next inspection takes place Windmill will achieve the much desired outstanding judgement.”
