Rated GOOD with "OUTSTANDING" leadership and behaviour!
We are delighted that Ofsted has recognised the fantastic work going on in our school. The inspectors were very impressed with what they found and said that the school had been “successfully transformed” since the previous inspection. They praised every aspect of the school including the curriculum, behaviour, attendance, communication with parents, governance and SEN provision.
Key points raised by Ofsted include:
- “Leaders have worked relentlessly to transform the school since the previous inspection. Since the headteacher’s appointment in 2016, she has been a force for good both within the school and the local community. She is trusted, respected and valued by staff, parents and pupils.”
- “Teachers are passionate about their work and committed to doing the very best for the pupils that they teach. Positive relationships underpin learning in the classrooms.”
- “Pupils thrive in an environment filled with trust and kindness. Pupils value the school community and respect the rules that are in place to keep everyone safe and happy.”
- “Pupils at Wilberforce have a friendliness and openness that is a credit to them, the staff and their parents and carers. They are genuinely pleased to greet visitors. They wave, smile warmly and say, ‘Welcome to Wilberforce.’ They open doors without being prompted to do so and often start up a friendly conversation about any number of interesting things. It is a delight to spend time with them.”
