A TROWBRIDGE primary school with just over 200 pupils has managed to record a ‘Good’ Ofsted rating in its first inspection since the Covic-19 pandemic began.

In its last inspection Studley Green Primary was given a ‘Requires Improvement’ rating so teachers are delighted with the latest grade.

Headteacher, Sarah Garbutt, said: "We are delighted that all of our hard work has been recognised in this report. It is a testament to our fantastic staff and amazing children.

"Our vision is that all of our pupils aim ‘beyond expectation’ and the report acknowledges that this is what our children achieve.

"We feel that we are an important part of the entire Studley Green community and are delighted that the report recognises this."

The school in Westfield Road, has 209 pupils aged four to 11 years and was inspected on September 14 and 15.

It was awarded ‘Good’ for the quality of education, behaviour and attitudes, personal development, leadership and management and early years provision.

The inspectors said: “Pupils are at the heart of this inclusive school. Leaders have high expectations and are determined that all pupils achieve well. Parents appreciate the care and nurture provided for their children.

“One parent commented that ‘all children are respected as individuals and are encouraged to reach their own full potential.”

They added: “A well-sequenced curriculum is in place. However, sometimes pupils do not recall previous learned knowledge independently in some subjects.

"Leaders need to ensure that pupils remember what they have learned and build on this each year.”
