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.’
Pupils’ behaviour was judged to be outstanding at the time of the previous inspection and this remains the case. Their behaviour in lessons and around the school during my inspection was exemplary.
Its values are reflected and celebrated across all aspects of school life.
The school vision of ‘Grow, Learn, Persevere and Succeed’ is at the heart of its work.
Great Leighs School provides a welcoming, caring and inclusive environment where each child is treated as an individual.
Pupils attitudes to learning are excellent…this is because they enjoy learning so much.
Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural awareness is developed very thoroughly.
Pupils have very positive attitudes to their learning and are extremely proud of their school.
Pupils feel safe in school and their parents agree.
Pupils’ behaviour in lessons and around the school is good and often excellent.
This is a rapidly improving school. Additional adults who help to support pupils’ learning are highly effective and a strength of the school.
