Following our recent Ofsted inspection on 10th December 2019, I am delighted to share the final inspection report.
We are incredibly proud to say that Pine Ridge Infant School continues to be a ‘GOOD’ school.
The report tells you what it is like for your child to attend this school, what the school does well and what it needs to do better.
We are especially delighted that Ofsted recognised “Pine Ridge Infant School is a warm and friendly school. Pupils enjoy coming to school because they learn a lot and feel safe and cared for.”
Inspectors saw that “Pupils behave well in lessons and around the school. They play together sensibly during play and lunchtimes. Pupils have positive attitudes to learning and are very keen to get involved in the activities planned for them.”
During the day, inspectors met with the Headteacher and senior leaders from across our three schools. They also met with the Chair of the Schools’ SSB, Mr Garrett, Mr Rogers our GLF Education partner and the CEO of GLF Schools, Mr Chaloner.
Meetings were held with teachers from the school and Nursery. They met with our pupils, looked at their work and spoke to them about what it is like to attend Pine Ridge Infant School. Inspectors saw that: “The classrooms are vibrant, safe and exciting places to learn. As a result, children achieve well.” They also observed children’s behaviour during play and lunchtimes and spoke to parents. Inspectors reviewed the school’s arrangements for safeguarding and the school’s provision for pupils with SEND.
I would like to thank you for your support and contribution to the inspection process; inspectors took into account your responses to the online questionnaire (Parent View), one of which stated: “My son absolutely loves it and he’s learned so much.”
We could not be more proud of our children and their wonderful achievements; it is fantastic to have their efforts recognised by Ofsted, who noted the children “enjoy a wide range of activities that take place during and after the school day. They talked enthusiastically about the clubs they take part in.”
I am also immensely grateful to our highly committed teachers and support staff who work extremely hard, every day, to make Pine Ridge Infant School the best that it can be.
With best wishes,
