Following an Ofsted inspection in February 2018, Trumpington Meadows Primary School has secured an overall effectiveness rating of Good with some areas achieving Outstanding.
Inspectors praised the “highly effective leadership team that has brought about rapid whole-school improvement in a very short space of time”. The quality of teaching is noted as “consistently good due to effective training and development for all staff”. In most year groups progress is good with the most able pupils exceeding expectations for their age. The effectiveness of leadership and management were noted as Outstanding along with personal development, welfare and behaviour. It was noted that the pupils’ behaviour in class, around the school and during break times is outstanding.
The school’s three core rights – ‘to learn without unfair distraction; to be safe physically and emotionally; and to be treated with respect’ – are fully understood by pupils and consistently applied by all staff.
Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. The non-ministerial department inspect and regulate services that care for children and young people, and services providing education and skills for learners of all ages.
