Thumbs up for Great Tey Ofsted report

Essex County Standard: Thumbs up for Great Tey Ofsted report Thumbs up for Great Tey Ofsted report

Pupils and teachers have been given the thumbs up in their latest Ofsted report.

Great Tey Primary School has been graded good in its latest inspection, which also praised the outstanding behaviour of the 39 pupils at the school.

The Chrismund Way school had previously been graded as satisfactory in its Ofsted inspection in 2011.

Delighted headteacher Debbie Crabb said: “The expectations during an inspection have been raised considerably recently, we have been working very hard since the last inspection in 2011 and are very pleased that this hard work has been recognised by Ofsted.

“The inspection recognised that the school has improved considerably since the last inspection.

“Great Tey Primary is a team and I am very grateful to everyone within the team, including staff, governors and parents, who has made a contribution towards this outcome.

“We are especially pleased that the behaviour and safety of pupils was judged as outstanding.

“This judgement is credit to the children at Great Tey. “ The inspectors, who visited the school on March 19 and 20, observed six lesson and six phonetics classes.

The school, which has one class for infants and another for junior pupils, was praised for the headteacher’s outstanding leadership and relentless focus on improving pupils’ progress.

To become an outstanding school the most able pupils must always been given more difficult work, reception pupils who find phonics difficult must be given more practice time and a small number of pupils must read more to make better progress.

OFSTED is a waste of space.

That school I am sure knew it worked well so how much money was spent on proving it?

Let's hope the older pupils have stopped tying each other up and persecuting the younger ones. Do the Ofsted inspectors look out for that kind of thing? Even if it is still going on, the inspectors will see no evidence of it.

Very unlike our Boris, digging out an old chestnut:- and so below the belt, don't you think?
No mention of the fine achievements at great tey primary school.
Together within a hard working TEAM, head teacher Debbie Crabb has brought the learning facility forward in leaps and bounds.
Recognition by Ofsted is the icing on the cake.

Well done.

It's fantastic to see a school come round and improve itself. I know this school and it has such an amazing family atmosphere where all the children care for one another and act like one big family. They achieved an 'outstanding' for behaviour and safety and Debbie Crabb was also advised her leadership of the school was outstanding.

Very proud of a great little school that is tucked away where many people don't know about but only just outside of Stanway.

Of course I am pleased for the school, but I also remember the way that the governors covered up for the dismissal of Carol Hill, the dinner lady who reported the tying up of a little girl by a group of children including the son of one of the governors. This happened less than 5 years ago. I don't accept that it is "below the belt" to mention this. Those readers who do not remember 2009 can search this site's archive, where the story is set out for them.
