Middleton Continues to be Ofsted Outstanding
13 June 2023
Middleton Primary is an outstanding school. Staff were judged by Ofsted to ‘have high expectations of all pupils.’ Inspectors found that ‘Pupils are happy and feel safe’, their ‘behaviour is exceptional’ and they ‘show high levels of respect towards each other and the adults within the school.’
The inspection, which took place in May, found that ‘Leaders have established a highly ambitious curriculum’ and that ‘Provision for children in the early years is exceptional’, as ‘Leaders ensure that children get off to a strong start with their learning’. Parents recognise ‘the many strengths of the school and one, whose comment was representative of many, stated that the school is joyful.’
Thrilled with the outcome of the inspection, Headteacher Mrs Rachel Roberts said:
I am extremely proud that this is the second consecutive outstanding judgement by Ofsted and I am delighted that parents, children and staff were all so positive about the school. At Middleton, we believe in strong values and ensure that personal development is at the heart of learning.
Middleton’s staff should be applauded for their unwavering enthusiasm, as every pupil benefits from a stimulating learning environment, in which they are encouraged to develop their character to prepare them for the future.
Middleton Primary School is part of Kingsbridge Educational Trust. The CEO, Peter Barnes, echoed the Headteacher’s comments, by adding:
This was the first inspection at Middleton Primary since it was graded as Outstanding in 2017, so it is fantastic that the outcome of the latest inspection concluded that it continues to be so.
