Bottesford Primary School ‘delighted’ after Ofsted rates it as ‘good'





A primary school has noted its delight after being rated ‘good’ by Ofsted following an inspection.

Bottesford Primary School has once again achieved a ‘good’ rating following an Ofsted inspection earlier this month.

The inspection was a two-day visit, during which the school’s leaders were able to share with the inspector a range of evidence about what the school has done and is doing to have a positive impact on the progress of pupils.

Headteacher, Emma Barker, said: “I am delighted with the Ofsted report as it recognises the achievements of the pupils and the hard work of the staff team.

“I am pleased that the report recognises that ‘the school aims to give the pupils the very best education in each subject’ as this has been at the forefront since taking over the leadership of the school in September 2020.”

The report described the school as “a happy and caring place to learn”.

It added: “Pupils feel listened to. Mutual respect permeates the school. Pupils really appreciate the support that is available all around them. This makes them feel safe.”

The report praised pupils’ behaviour and the learning and wider opportunities that are available at the school.

Bottesford Primary School has been a member of Learn Academies Trust since October 1, 2023, which has 14 member primary schools across Leicestershire.

Learn Academies Trust’s leader Stef Edwards said: “This report celebrates the commitment of a dedicated staff and governor team to providing a happy learning environment for every child at Bottesford. It’s a pleasure to congratulate everyone at the school on such a positive report.”
