Parent's comments

‘I love school, its a good place to learn’…

Children's comments

‘the teachers explain really well’

Children's comments

Pupils are making good progress in improving their reading, writing and mathematical skills. Pupils’ progress in key stage 1 is particularly strong. Pupils are developing a range of exciting vocabulary in their writing. Pupils’ handwriting and spelling are weaker.

Ofsted comments

‘Teaching is improving. Teachers are successful in keeping pupils on task. They offer pupils activities which catch their imagination and motivate them to do well.’

Ofsted comments

‘thank you for keeping me safe’

Children's comments

‘Leaders have made significant improvements to early years provision. As a result, children
are making a strong start in building their skills in reading, writing and mathematics.’

Ofsted comments

‘I love school, its amazing, its like a second home’

Children's comments

‘Leaders, including governors, understand the strengths and weaknesses of the school’s work.
They take decisive action to secure improvement. Consequently, the gaps in the progress made by different groups of pupils are diminishing.’

Ofsted comments

‘Most-able pupils and those who have special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities generally make good progress because teachers match tasks carefully to their needs.’

Ofsted comments

‘Pupils behave well in the classroom and around the school. Teachers support pupils with
identified behaviour difficulties well.’

Ofsted comments

‘The curriculum supports pupils in developing positive attitudes to learning. Leaders have linked activities closely to pupils’ interests and aspirations. This has been particularly successful in engaging boys.’

Ofsted comments

‘You have all been amazing. I hope all you teachers are proud of yourselves for the way you have conducted things throughout this pandemic. Proud to say my children are students at Withernsea Primary School’
