Pupils, families and staff at a close-knit Knowle West primary school have been celebrating after school inspectors ratined it ‘Good’ in all aspects.
Ofsted commended staff at Oasis Academy Connaught for their work with the local community and the support they give to pupils and families which is described as “exemplary.”
Staff work very successfully to improve pupils’ personal development, behaviour and welfare. Attendance has improved and the number of exclusions has declined.
Behaviour in classes is very good and pupils demonstrate consistently positive attitudes to learning.
They found the provision for children in the early years was strong. Children get off to a good start in their education and make quick progress from typically low starting points.
For the last three years, the progress made by pupils at key stage 2 has been above or in line with the national average.
The school impressed inspectors with its effective teaching in reading, writing and numeracy across the curriculum and praised the school for preparing its pupils well for the next stage of their education when they leave Year 6.
Principal of Oasis Academy Connaught, George Fraser says: “We are grateful to Ofsted for their visit, which accurately reflects what our staff, students and parents know – this is a Good School that cares about the community it serves and is dedicated to supporting our children to achieve their very best.”
“I am also thankful to all of our teachers and support staff who come to the Academy each day, committed to developing their practice so that our students can make even greater progress.”
