Welcome to Styal PrimarySchool
Valuing the Individual to Believe and Achieve
We have recently been visited by Ofsted and so are delighted to attach our excellent report (download below). We are very proud of our school and how well our children achieve here in so many ways, not all of which can be measured!
It was lovely to find that we had an overwhelmingly (100%) positive response from parents, all parents said they would recommend the school to others, and a typical comment was: ‘The school allows individual children to flourish.’
We were also very pleased to hear the inspector describe our children’s behaviour as impeccable. She writes they are ‘proud, happy and industrious’ she also reported ‘pupils listen carefully to adults and show great respect to visitors and to each other.’
When the inspector spoke to the children they said they feel safe here and are very proud of their school. The pupils are confident that adults in the school will help them if they have a problem and will deal with it quickly. The children’s favourite part of school was the outdoors. It was reported that staff use the rich woodland environment to support learning across the curriculum and develop pupils’ social skills and emotional resilience. These are such important life skills.
Our academic results are in line or above national in Reception, Y1, Y2 and Y6 these are all the year groups where they are measured and reported externally.
We are very fortunate at Styal to have a strong team of Governors. The inspector wrote -Governors work very closely with you to provide highly effective leadership and to challenge and support you.
Our ethos is to ‘Value the individual to believe and achieve’ –this was recognised throughout the report. She wrote that we have ‘robust procedures to monitor and track pupils’ progress and the quality of teaching in reading, writing and mathematics. This enables you to identify quickly any individual who falls behind and provide extra support to help them catch up.’
We are all very proud of our achievements at Styal and it is lovely to have them recognised in this way. We are also proud of your children who have proven that they are hard working, eager to learn and determined to reach their potential.
We will carry on this hard work in school and we expect to continue to go from strength to strength. Our ‘strong caring staff team’ have created a culture which provides our children with an excellent foundation which enables them to leave Styal as well rounded individuals ready for their next step.
WELL DONE STYAL !
