Monday 1st September - the first day - we are OPEN!
Welcome to Whingate Primary School!
'A Good School with Outstanding features.'
We had a full OFSTED Inspection on the 5th and 6th February 2014.
The Inspectors were impressed with much of what they saw, and their report describes a fantastic learning environment for your children, for example:
“Pupils’ behaviour is outstanding...they display exemplary attitudes to their learning...they are polite and generous...they are very confident when talking to inspectors and repeatedly praised their teachers...”
“The school’s work to keep pupils safe and secure is outstanding...”
“Behaviour is managed exceptionally well...”
“Most teaching is good and an increasing proportion is outstanding. Teachers’ enthusiasm rubs off onto pupils...”
“Achievement is good in each stage of school. Pupils, including the most able, achieve well”
“The curriculum provides for pupils’ different needs exceptionally well.”
“Provision for the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils is exemplary.”
Inspectors concluded that the Leadership and Management across the school are outstanding.
