Ofsted Report

We are absolutely delighted that, after a very rigorous and thorough Ofsted inspection, Northolmes Junior has been judged to be a ’good’ school.

Northolmes has ‘improved significantly since the last inspection because leaders and governors have focused sharply on raising the quality of teaching and accelerating pupils’ rates of progress”. Indeed, this year our children achieved our best ever end of key stage results.

Our report is testament to the relentless hard work and dedication of Staff to secure improvements and ensure “Pupils achieve well across the whole curriculum”.  Our report acknowledges that children enjoy learning and feel confident and happy.

We are extremely proud of our wonderful children who were praised for being “kind and considerate” and recognised for being “exceptionally understanding of each other’s differences”. The inspectors confirmed what we already knew- our children love school and are amazing!

Despite our fantastic achievement, we are not complacent as we remain determined to build on our many successes and to continue to improve.  We were therefore reassured that our report confirms “the further areas identified as needing additional development are well judge” because “Leaders have an accurate understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of the school.’  We had already begun to address the recommendations in our report prior to our inspection having appointed a new Inclusion leader and brought in a new tracking system. We are certainly on our way to bigger and better things!

Northolmes Junior School is part of Greenfields Federation with our feeder school, Littlehaven Infant. We pride ourselves in being friendly, family orientated schools and look forward to our continued partnership with our supportive parents, governors and locality partner schools. We strongly believe that together we can continue to build on our successes and deliver the first class education that every child deserves.
