Vaynor pupils filled with pride after glowing Ofsted report

Harry Leach 6th Mar, 2020

STAFF and pupils at Vaynor First School are beaming with pride after being rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted.

Inspectors described the school’s motto – ‘inspired to be the best that I can be’ – as central to everything it does.

They said children are supported by ‘passionate’ teachers and are learning to a high standard due to a ‘strong curriculum’.

Pupils, who enjoy going to school, have many opportunities to learn about life in modern Britain and also its rich history.

The report states that trips to Redditch Borough Council, Warwick Castle and the local cenotaph on Remembrance Day, to name a few, are extremely beneficial to youngsters who are taking their first steps in the world.

Governors are also heavily involved in supporting the ‘fully inclusive’ school and a robust anti-bullying policy means that bullying ‘very rarely happens, if at all’.

Headteacher Sallyanne Dunstan said: “We are passionate about ensuring that our children are ready for each stage of their educational journey.

“The January 22 inspection found that ‘nearly all pupils reach the expected standards in reading, writing and mathematics by the end of key stage 1 and are ready for middle school by the end of Year 4’.”
