Ofsted Information


Great Leighs Primary School was last inspected by Ofsted in March 2018.  The overall effectiveness of the school was judged to be “Good” with the behaviour of children classed again as ‘Outstanding’

Parents and carers are overwhelmingly effusive about the school and all that it provides for their children. One parent, who summed up the views of many, stated: ‘Great Leighs is an amazing school. The school has a friendly, nurturing atmosphere which allows children to flourish physically, socially and emotionally as well as grow intellectually. I feel the school works well with parents, keeping us informed on pupil progress. All members of the teaching staff as well as the headteacher are approachable, always having their door open to listen.’
