Quotations from OFSTED:
"Inspectors... judge it (Lane End Primary School) to be excellent in all aspects."
"Within an overarching commitment to develop the whole child, the school is highly focused on ensuring all pupils achieve as well as they can. It directs its resources astutely to ensure all do so. Pupils take great enjoyment in their education because outstanding teaching ensures that the work they receive inspires and challenges them to learn."
"A wide range of out of school activities enriches pupils’ experience and contributes significantly to their learning and personal development. The curriculum also ensures pupils are well informed about healthy lifestyles and how to stay safe and this is reflected in the good choices and decisions they make."
"The curriculum is rich and well planned, allowing all pupils to achieve exceptionally well academically and very well in their personal development. Pupils enjoy lessons and say they find activities interesting and challenging."
"Very good relationships, high expectations and a stimulating curriculum result in very good behaviour and a strong sense of security. Spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is very good with the development of pupils’ social skills being exemplary."
"Consistently strong teaching is a significant factor in pupils’ achievement. Teachers have high expectations for pupils’ progress and behaviour, and ensure that pupils’ learning moves on briskly....A further strength of the teaching is the very good use made of additional adults who are deployed highly effectively to accelerate the progress and boost the self-esteem of those pupils who need extra help in their learning."
"A key factor of the success of the school is its outstanding leadership and management. The headteacher’s strategic vision and pursuit of excellence provides a strong steer for all staff. They share and act on the high expectations very well. Leadership is particularly effective in developing and capitalising on the expertise and interests of the staff to improve outcomes for the pupils. ....The headteacher, staff and governors are continually looking for ways to improve the high quality of education provided."
"This outstanding school knows itself very well and is already taking the steps it has identified to make it even better. As a result, no issues for improvement are raised."
