Guildhall Feoffment Primary School has received a good rating from Ofsted after a recent short inspection.
The school’s leadership and ‘caring and nurturing ethos’ alongside a supportive teaching team and effective governors are all praised.
Its management of the new building works and changes caused by the transition from three to two tier education is also recognised by inspectors.
Pupils describe the Bury St Edmunds school as ‘amazing,’ ‘brilliant’ and ‘fantastic,’ while classrooms are bright and interesting with displays which support pupils’ learning.
Reading and writing attainment has improved across the school and maths, while effective is not as strong, but is improving. Early years provision also ensures a strong start for children’s education.
Inspectors say children with special educational needs or disability learn independently, are involved in setting their own targets and make as much progress as other pupils while disadvantaged pupils achieve the same levels of reading and writing as their peers. with maths improving.
Inspectors suggest pupils need more opportunity to show achievements in non core subjects and to improve their presentation.
Headteacher, Sue Herriott, said: “I work with the most fantastic and professional staff who are extremely conscientious and dedicated to the pupils’ progress, achievement and success. Most of the teaching is outstanding.”
