Ofsted report says Lillington is a ‘good’ school

LILLINGTON Nursery and Primary School is celebrating after it received a positive report from school inspectors.

The report by Ofsted, for which an inspection took place in October, says that the school is good in all four areas of assessment - achievement of pupils, quality of teaching, behaviour and safety and leadership and management.

This marks an improvement since the school’s last inspection in 2009 after which it was judged to be satisfactory.

Encouraging would-be parents to see the good and improving school for themselves, Headteacher Derek Fance said: “The recommendations from the visit were areas we had already identified through our own self-evaluation so we are now getting on with what we know will make this school outstanding throughout when we are next inspected.

“Of particular note, is the judgement made on the early years foundation stage, reception and nursery classes. Here inspectors felt that the children made ‘very rapid progress’ as a result of ‘outstanding teaching’.


“This underlines the school’s approach to ‘getting it right’ in the early stages of children’s learning journey.”
