Northleach C of E Primary School

Ofsted & School Performance

As you will see from our latest Ofsted report that we continue to be a good school. 


We had our latest Ofsted inspection on 12th January 2023 and I am delighted that the school continues to be rated a good school.  

'This school is a wonderful place and we feel so lucky’ is a view shared by parents and shows what it is like to be a pupil at Northleach. Pupils appreciate all the school has to offer and are happy to come every day. Leaders have high expectations and as a result, pupils achieve well. 

Pupils’ behaviour is good in lessons and during social times. They fully understand the school values and follow the school rules. Pupils comment how they are taught to look
after each other. Bullying is rare. Pupils say if it does happen, adults deal with it promptly. 

Leaders are ambitious to provide a broad curriculum that excites pupils from the time they start in Reception Year . The curriculum is well planned. It sets out the key knowledge that pupils need to know, understand and remember.

Reading is at the core of pupils’ education . Leaders have an expectation that every pupil will be a fluent reader by the end of Year 2. 

The school offers high quality pastoral support for pupils. This ensures that pupils feel
safe in school and are ready to learn.
