PUPILS and staff at a Barrow primary school are celebrating their latest positive Ofsted report.

Ormsgill Nursery & Primary School’s headteacher Mick Cull said he is ‘very proud’ the primary has been judged as Good by inspectors following a visit on June 11 and 12.

“We are very pleased the hard work of everyone in our school has been recognised in this report,” Mr Cull said.

“As a school, we pride ourselves on providing a caring and nurturing environment for every child and our incredible team of staff go the extra mile to look after the academic achievement and emotional well-being of all pupils.

In the report, inspectors highlighted the inclusiveness of the school.

They said: “Staff and pupils uphold the school’s aims to ‘Be kind, “Be calm, Do your best.’

“The school is inclusive, and pupils are kind and considerate towards each other. They feel safe and are extremely happy at school.

“Behaviour in lessons is good.”

Mr Cull said: “Inspectors recognised our children are ‘kind and considerate’ and that they feel ‘safe and happy in school’.

“For us, this is our priority and we know that children who feel safe and nurtured will be good learners.

“Pupils make great progress and our school is a happy place to learn.

“Every member of the community is committed to our values which say: ‘Be Kind, Be Calm and Do Your Best’

Looking forward, inspectors said in their report: “The school should continue to improve pupils’ progress and raise standards in reading and mathematics at Key Stage Two.”

Mr Cull welcomed the recommendations and added:: “We are always striving to improve and welcome the opportunity to address the development areas identified within the report.

“We see this inspection as an opportunity to build from a solid platform.

“Our school has gone from strength to strength over the past few years and we are excited about the future.”
