A “thriving” primary school could be on its way to an outstanding grade at its next Ofsted inspection.

Edenfield Church of England Primary School in Market Street, Edenfield, was subject to a short inspection in October, with the report for this inspection being published in November.

Inspectors said there was no overall change from the school’s last result of good, achieved during its last full inspection in 2014.

The report said: “There has been no change to this school’s overall judgement of good as a result of this ungraded inspection.

"However, the evidence gathered suggests that the inspection grade might be outstanding if a graded inspection were carried out.

“The school’s next inspection will be a graded inspection.”

Inspectors noted how happy pupils were to attend the school which is “at the heart of the local community” and positive relationships are formed between pupils and staff.

It was also said that pupils are “kind and courteous” to each other and behaviour overall is not an issue.

The report said: “Pupils appreciate the recognition they receive for behaving well and producing excellent work, such as receiving a ‘star of the day’ badge.

"They value the frequent opportunities, such as celebration assemblies, to share their successes with parents and carers.

“Pupils benefit from an array of activities that enable them to develop their hobbies and interests. For example, they participate in horse riding and skiing, as well as clubs such as craft and e-safety.

“Pupils are encouraged to represent the school in sports, music, and debating competitions, as well as the annual drama productions.

“Staff identify and remove any barriers to pupils participating in extra-curricular activities, including for pupils with special education needs and/or disabilities (SEND).”

This is the second ungraded inspection the school has had since the full inspection in 2014. In 2018, the school was found to be continuing to be good.
