Pepper Hill School has been graded ‘Good’ in its latest Ofsted report.
Inspectors noted that children have positive attitudes towards learning and enjoy coming to school, as well as good teaching and committed staff.
The Ofsted report states: “Pupils achieve well, they feel safe and their behaviour is good.”
It added: “The overall quality of teaching is good and teachers develop good learning relationships with pupils. They effectively encourage them to learn from each other in small groups”.
The inspectors also commented on the staff who “are enthusiastic and passionate and have a good understanding of their roles and responsibilities”.
Headteacher Helen Nicholson said: “We are thrilled with the outcome of our recent Ofsted Inspection and are glad Ofsted have recognised that our pupils make good progress and that we have a team of highly committed teachers and support staff”.
‘Good’ is the second-highest of the three ratings a school can be given by Ofsted.
Chair of governors Anne Slee added: “I’m delighted that we have had this very positive report from Ofsted and I am pleased that the strong leadership of the headteacher and hard work and commitment of all the team at Pepper Hill School has been recognised”.
