Ofsted success for Brunel Field primary

Brunel Field Primary School in Ashley Down has been rated Good in all areas following its first Ofsted inspection in 12 years.

A team of three inspectors who visited in November gave the school the positive judgement for quality of education, leadership and management, behaviour and attitudes, personal development and early years provision.

They said the school was ambitious for all its 411 pupils and had designed a curriculum, with reading at its heart, that gave them the knowledge they needed to succeed.

The inspectors praised pupils’ calm and sensible behaviour and the warm relationships across the school and they noted that parents were overwhelmingly positive.

“Pupils live out the school vision ‘respect, compassion, commitment and joy.’

“They are polite and welcoming to all. Adults in school know the pupils well,” the report said.
