Idle CE Primary celebrates coming first

Idle CE Primary School is celebrating being the first primary school in the district to be judged outstanding in all areas under the new Ofsted framework which was revised in September 2013.

The school received Ofsted’s highest accolade following its inspection in February this year.  The school had previously been judged to be good when it was inspected in 2009.


In this glowing report inspectors praised all categories and judged them all to be outstanding:


  • Achievement of pupils
  • Quality of teaching
  • Behaviour and safety of pupils
  • Leadership and Management


The report says:  “The quality of teaching is outstanding.  Teachers have excellent subject knowledge and know the needs of their pupils very well.  As a result, pupils are inspired by and highly engaged in learning lessons.”


The school is delighted at Ofsted’s judgement as it reflects how people see the school.  The positive outcome has been made possible due to the inspirational and dedicated staff, insightful and motivated governors, engaged and supportive parents and the imaginative and enthusiastic pupils.


The school has very close links with the community who are also very proud of this great achievement.


This is an excellent result for Idle CE Primary and congratulations to all who have worked so hard to bring about this amazing achievement.
