12:24pm Monday 7th January 2013 in News
ORSETT Primary is on the up according to Ofsted.
The school has seen its rating raised from “satisfactory” to “good” following the latest inspection by the education watchdog.
Inspectors praised the “consistently good” teaching at the primary, in School Lane, as well as pupils’ behaviour.
The report said: “The quality of teaching is consistently good.
“Teachers provide interesting lessons and train pupils to be responsible in their learning, particularly in checking their own work and that of their classmates.
“School leaders ensure that parents and carers are involved in their children’s education.
"Parents and carers are overwhelmingly pleased with what has been achieved in the past two years since the current headteacher was appointed.
“Pupils enjoy learning and are keen to improve because they are able to choose some of the topics they study.
“Pupils’ behaviour across the school is excellent.
“They are polite, mature and feel safe and happy in school.”
