Ofsted

All our staff are highly committed, we work hard to provide excellence in all that we do. This encompasses our work with children and families but also more widely as we influence other partners and schools, in particular our work to represent and get the best for children of service families.

I am delighted to be able to share with you the findings of our Ofsted Inspection which took place in February 2019. 

The report (see above) really captures what makes Leeming special: “strong and positive relationships are the hallmark of this school” and “pastoral care is paramount to all”. This really encompasses what we are 'all about' at Leeming.

The report goes on to say that:

  • Leaders are "uncompromising in their pursuit of excellence"
  • Governors are "highly skilled, enthusiastic and ambitious"
  • Children in the early years "make good progress" because of the "strong bonds that are formed with accomplished staff" 
  • Pupils are "friendly and welcoming", "behave well [and have] positive attitudes"
  • Children with Special Educational Needs make "excellent progress"
  • "Highly effective pastoral care provides thoughtful induction for those pupils new to the school and emotional support for pupils who are leaving."
  • Teachers "have high expectations for pupils' achievement"
  • Pupils "are making very good progress and developing their writing skills well"
  • The teaching of PE is "highly effective"
  • The school has a "very settled atmosphere" and children are "thoughtfully supported" during times of parental deployment and separation
  • "Strong and positive relationships with parents are formed quickly by welcoming staff."

The report talks about our children as being “polite and well mannered” and also notes that they show “much empathy” – what a great set of attributes and values. The children are the real stars of the show, and the centre of all we do.
