What Ofsted and others say

So what does Ofsted say?

In our most recent Ofsted Inspection in January 2012, Bygrove was judged ‘Outstanding’ in all the 4 areas of Achievement, Quality of Teaching, Behaviour & Safety and Leadership & Management. Overall Effectiveness was therefore ‘Outstanding’.

Here’s just some of what the inspectors had to say:

How about our School Improvement Partners?

'The school has a comprehensive system for reviewing and analysing feedback and data and the LT is effective in using the resources of the school to address concerns at an early stage. The model of distributive leadership which the head teachers practice enables a whole-school view about priorities and how to maintain improvement.' 'It was obvious that the pupils felt that their voice was very important in the life of the school. They had been involved in key decisions, had financial responsibility and accountability and valued the opportunities they had been given.'
(Evelyn Holdsworth)

What do others say?

Investors in People GOLD Award – July 2019
The LETTA Trust was awarded the Gold Award

“This is a highly collaborative environment; a very rich & uplifting place to visit. The immense commitment to the learning & development of great teachers who go on to be great leaders was displayed by everyone.”

Inclusion Quality Mark Award 2021

Bygrove was assessed as a Flagship School for Inclusion

“‘No One is Left Behind’ continues to be a powerful message that succinctly defines the ethos of Bygrove Primary School.”

“The school values the opportunity to collaborate with other members of the Trust and working parties have been established. It is clear to those involved that collaboration has been most worthwhile and has sown seeds for future development. The school is modest about its achievements through its tremendous work within the local community.”

“Summarising the achievements of a school that serves its pupils, and their families so well is a challenge. The Academy Trust is to be commended for the way it has allowed its schools to retain their autonomy, maintaining their individual identities. There is no doubt that the influence of leadership within the trust is a compelling force. Visiting Bygrove Primary, albeit virtually for the second time, has been such an encouraging experience at a time of national anxiety. In the words of the Qualified Teacher for the Deaf, “visiting the school is a joyous thing.”
