STAFF and pupils at Gawber Primary School are celebrating this week after being rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted.

At its last inspection in 2013, the school received the highest grading possible - and upon Ofsted’s return in May, they picked up the education watchdog’s top accolade yet again.

The school has a total of 212 on its roll - and it’s been described as an ‘inspirational’ place for children to learn.

The report, which was released earlier this week, states: “This is an inspirational and thriving school - pupils feel safe here.

“Staff are aspirational for pupils’ achievement.

“They nurture pupils from the moment they arrive at the school.

“Pupils, including pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), have excellent attitudes to learning.

“They succeed in all areas of the well-designed curriculum.

“Pupils behave exceptionally well.

“The school’s motto - ‘a caring family school’ - encapsulates the values.

“Kindness underpins everything the staff and pupils do.

“Pupils conduct themselves in an exemplary manner - they respect and value their time together.

“Behaviour in lessons is strong without exception.

“This is because staff are experts in modelling the desired behaviours.”
