Congratulations to Golborne Community Primary, who got a glowing review when Ofsted inspectors visited recently.
The school, on Talbot Street, was graded Good overall and Outstanding in two areas.
The inspection took place in February and has just been published. It shows that both the behaviour and attitudes of pupils as well as the personal development they demonstrate whilst at the school were both worthy of Ofsted’s top marks.
Inspectors said that many parents told them that their children have “thrived” whilst at Golborne Community Primary, and that children spoke enthusiastically about the opportunities to learn. They said “pupils’ behaviour is exemplary at all times of the day. They are polite, kind, patient and respectful.”
There was praise too for the teachers and staff. Inspectors said they all share the “common purpose” of wanting pupils to achieve their best – in fact they noted they are “relentlessly ambitious for every pupil, irrespective of need”. They said teachers had “strong subject knowledge across all curriculum areas”, explained new learning clearly and that they have had extensive training which enables them to quickly identify any special educational needs or disabilities and give pupils the support they need.
They said that pupil behaviour is so good, that even “low-level” disruption in class is “very rare”, and that any incidents of bullying are “dealt with well” by school leaders.
Ofsted also said that the school is well led, and that staff are proud to work for Golborne Community Primary.
This is the first time that Golborne Community Primary has been inspected since it converted into an Academy in 2019. Prior to that, it had a Good rating in 2015, having turned things around after being judged to ‘require improvement’ in 2013.
This latest report really makes for fantastic reading. Well done to everyone!
