Our school was last inspected in November 2018.
Parent View gives parents the chance to tell Ofsted what they think about their child’s school, from the quality of teaching to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. Please follow the link below to have your say:
“The headteacher provides consistent and effective leadership. She has built a cohesive team who, together, share high aspirations that pupils achieve their best. Staff are proud to work at the school. They discuss new ideas together so that there is a shared understanding of the actions that are taken to improve the school.”
“The curriculum is broad and balanced. It provides pupils with opportunities to develop a love of learning through well-targeted enrichment opportunities.”
“Governors are committed to the school’s success. They share the aspirations of the school’s leaders to provide the best education for its pupils. Governors know the school well. They use the information provided by leaders to check the progress being made so that improvement targets are achieved.”
“Pupils understand how to keep themselves safe and can talk about this confidently. They recognise when their peers need help and they are supportive of one another. One pupil told the inspector that this was a good school because ‘We play nicely and never hurt each other’.”
“Teachers plan interesting lessons and actively engage pupils in their learning. They use their subject knowledge effectively. Teachers provide a clear sequence of learning that systematically develops pupils’ skills and understanding.”
“Leaders place a high priority on developing pupils’ sense of belonging and self-confidence. The nurturing environment creates a strong school community where individuals are respected and valued alike. One parent who commented on Parent View wrote, ‘We are one big family at Benington and the feel of community is reflected throughout the school.’ This view was reflected in the comments made by other parents.”
“Pupils are well mannered, polite and courteous. They talk enthusiastically about their work and the opportunities provided at the school.”
“Pupils’ attainment at the end of key stage 2 has been consistently above national averages at expected standards in reading, writing and mathematics.”
