OFSTED Inspection of Tockwith Primary

Posted On 22 Mar 2022
Comment: Off

OFSTED visited Tockwith for a Section 8 inspection on 8th – 9th February.

Tockwith Church of England Primary Academy continues to be a good school. There is enough evidence of improved performance to suggest that the school could be judged outstanding if we were to carry out a section 5 inspection now. The school’s next inspection will be a section 5 inspection.

What is it like to attend this school? (Quotes from the report)

The inspector was very impressed with our ‘warm and welcoming school’ where the ‘behaviour is exemplary’ and ‘expectations are extremely high’

”Behaviour is therefore likely to be better that the current judgement of good’

‘Pupils feel strongly that everyone is equal and should be respected’.

‘The inspector agrees with one parent’s comment that this is a ‘fantastic place to be a small child’


What does the school do well and what does it need to do better?

The organisation of the curriculum is clear. Leaders have identified important knowledge that they want pupils to remember.

Pupils confidently remember what they have learned. This is because teachers ensure that there are regular opportunities for recall of previous learning. Teachers make regular checks on what pupils have learned and plan catch-up sessions for pupils who are struggling.

Leaders want pupils to ‘live life in all its fullness’.
