Ofsted rated Ash Grange Good in All Areas

Ash Grange Primary School was inspected in June 2016 and is now judged by Ofsted to be a "Good" school.  


I cannot portray in a few words all that this means to the children, parents, staff, governors, community and me. For so long the school has had a poor reputation and we have all worked immensely hard over the last 5 years (and longer) to change that and we have done it. Together we’ve achieved a good judgement.

The inspectors were very helpful in validating all we believed about ourselves. Ofsted saw how wonderful the children are, how they love school and learning and are polite and respectful to all. The inspectors saw all the fantastic provision, the learning opportunities and how we try to ensure every child reaches their potential. Our fantastic teachers, support staff and administrators make this happen.   Parents reported how pleased they are with all we do.

The inspectors have made two key recommendations to improve the school:

  1. Now that we have enabled all children to get to the expected level, it’s time to push all children on to the higher level. The children have all the learning behaviours they need and now they need to push and drive themselves on to higher levels, with guidance and teaching from the staff.
  2. The children need to write more, in all subjects, this is sustained writing, pages at a time.  They can do it in English and now need to apply it to all subjects.
