Rose Wood Primary School

Pupils and staff at a primary school in Coulby Newham are celebrating after inspectors heaped praise on their achievements in the classroom.

Rose Wood Primary School in Coulby Newham was praised in every category of its latest Ofsted report.

The inspectors were particularly impressed by the teaching, the behaviour of the pupils, the way pupils work in lessons, the school’s leadership and procedures to make pupils safe.

Lead inspector John Paddick wrote: “The almost universal good and sometimes outstanding progress that pupils make results from the good teaching that they receive and the careful watch that members of staff keep on them.”

Inspectors found if pupils fall behind and need extra help, the school always provides support, often on a one-to-one basis.

Teachers have high expectations of pupils and manage their classes well. The inspectors found there is an “atmosphere of calm and industry” which pervades the school during lessons.

Teachers plan their lessons well and match the work closely to the needs and stages of development for all pupils.

Pupils told the inspectors that members of staff often make learning fun and very enjoyable.

The report noted that pupils almost always behave well in lessons and around the school. They have good relationships with each other and with the adults who work with them. Frequently they display impeccable manners and courteousness.

They are also proud of their successes in helping the youngest children and raising money for charities.

The inspectors said that headteacher Lesley Sinclair provides the school with strong and effective leadership.

Mr Paddick wrote: “The school provides good quality education because leaders and managers have a relentless focus on planning for pupils to have the very best and on driving standards up quickly.”

Safeguarding children has a high profile in the school and the school is very successful in promoting equality of opportunity.

The school was classed as good in all categories of achievement, quality of teaching, behaviour and safety of pupils, leadership and management and overall effectiveness. The school also has good capacity to improve further.

Headteacher Lesley Sinclair said: “We are extremely pleased at the comments of the Ofsted inspection team.

“This very positive report is thanks to a huge amount of effort, commitment and dedication by pupils, staff and parents.

“We are a very happy school at Rose Wood and we are all committed to giving our pupils a successful, fulfilling and enjoyable experience during their years here.”
