Ofsted 2008


Ridgefield Primary was also inspected by OFSTED on the 14th May 2008. The inspectors said:


“The school has been highly effective in meeting its aim of being a caring, sharing community where everyone is valued and respected. Provision for pupils who speak languages other than English at home is exceptionally good. Children receive a warm welcome when they start in the Nursery, where provision is outstanding. Many newcomers speak little or no English but support is so good that they rapidly become fluent and make at least as much progress in literacy and numeracy as all the others.”
“There is some highly imaginative teaching that fires pupils’ imaginations. Technology, such as computers and interactive whiteboards, is being used increasingly well to support learning. The use of technology to make short films is starting to become a feature of the good curriculum. Links are being made between subjects to make learning more interesting.”
“Nearly all parents are delighted with the education provided for their children, One comment was typical, ‘A wonderful school where all teachers work so hard and are so approachable’.”
“Leadership at all levels is good. The headteacher has gathered around him a team of staff who are passionate about developing an exciting learning environment.”
“Pupils feel valued, happy and safe because the school provides a very caring and supportive environment. One parent said, ‘I feel the school has a lovely, family environment’.”
