Buckland Church of England Primary School has once again achieved an ‘Outstanding’ rating from Ofsted.
The school is only one of a handful in Oxfordshire to receive the impressive accolade under the new inspection framework.
In their report, Ofsted remarked:
“Starting in the early years, pupils learn to take responsibility for their behaviour and actions really effectively. They have high expectations of themselves and each other that are reinforced consistently well by staff. Pupils know how to stay safe, looking after and caring for one another. They learn to be kind, considerate people.
Pupils have an impressive work ethic. They focus extremely well in lessons and often tackle extra challenges that teachers provide. Pupils dress smartly, are polite and are rightly very proud of their school. These characteristics develop because staff establish and maintain high standards for pupils’ achievement and conduct successfully”.
Louise Warren, headteacher at the school expressed her delight, saying:
“It is with great pleasure and pride that we received the report from our recent Ofsted inspection. We are truly fortunate to have the amazing staff team that we have but also to be supported by our dedicated governor and parent bodies who always help us to achieve the best for our pupils. And of course, to our children…… who really make Buckland what it is”.
CEO of Faringdon Learning Trust, Duncan Millard said:
“Buckland is one of only a handful of schools in Oxfordshire that has achieved Outstanding under the new Ofsted framework, a true testament to Louise’s leadership and her teams unrelenting focus on providing the very best education”.
