Ofsted praise for Upton Junior School

Posted: 18/01/2007 18:57:18

Upton Junior School in Poole has been praised by Ofsted inspectors as offering 'a safe, secure and friendly environment for pupils to work and play'.

The school, which has almost 350 pupils, received the positive feedback following a visit from inspectors in December 2006.

The report praised pupils for their good behaviour and the way they showed care and consideration for others. Inspectors commented specifically on how older pupils used their initiative in looking after young ones during playtimes.

Attendance is above average and parents are pleased with the way their children are looked after. Pupils respect each others' points of view and are willing to voice their own opinions.

Teaching staff were praised for their provision of carefully targeted support for pupils with learning difficulties and disabilities, which means they make the same progress as other pupils. Recognition was also given to the interesting lessons that offer activities that pupils enjoy.

Chair of Governors, Sue Young, said:

"It is good to know that the inspectors recognised what so many of our visitors tell us; that our school is a welcoming, friendly place with confident children who are eager to learn from well-informed teachers. We are not complacent, as the need for improvement is constant, but we are quietly pleased with the progress to date."

Head teacher, Adrienne Allen, added:

"I am delighted that Ofsted have recognised Upton Juniors as a school that is educating and developing the whole child. Our children are learning to make a positive contribution to society as well as learning the requirements of the National Curriculum. I am very proud of the progress they are making."

Looking to the future, inspectors feel that the school shows sound capacity to make further improvement. The report suggests that pupils are given more opportunities to practise and improve their writing skills and that the work they are given is challenging.
