We’re Ofsted Rated ‘Good’!

Following our recent Ofsted inspection, we’re incredibly proud to announce that our school has been rated as ‘Good’, which is a positive step from our previous rating of ‘Requires Improvement’. 

We could not have achieved this without the support of our colleagues and Wickersley Partnership Trust, but most of all our students and families. A huge thank you to all of our students for following the Thrybergh Primary Way particularly, ‘We believe in ourselves!’ and ‘We are proud of our talents and achievements’. 

The ‘Good’ rating recognises the dedication of our staff team in continuously improving the learning environment for our students to learn and grow. The report states that our school ‘is a welcoming place’ and that ‘pupils are happy and safe in school’. 

Since our last Ofsted inspection, our school has made improvements to the wider curriculum. From Foundation Stage to Year 6, our Leadership Team ensures that the knowledge and skills we want all of our students to learn are ‘clearly identified’. Our use of assessments to identify gaps in knowledge has been praised due to our teachers’ ability to ‘successfully adapt lessons to address what pupils need to revisit and learn next’. 

Our Headteacher and Leadership Team also have high expectations of students’ learning and behaviour, and are determined to ensure that all students receive the highest quality of education. Leaders also ‘support staff development and wellbeing’ – encouraging collaborative working and providing training to help staff workloads, and ultimately improve the school and the learning culture.

One of the standout qualities of our school is that we give our students opportunities to learn about the world around them through a range of activities and visits. We are ‘committed to ensuring that pupils access a range of experiences to develop their character. These are carefully designed to support pupils to become active and well rounded citizens. These activities help pupils with their confidence and resilience’. 

Because of our positive approach to behaviour, our students were recognised as being well-behaved in lessons and around school, with the report stating that they are ‘encouraged to take responsibility for their actions, to reflect and to identify how they can make better choices’. 

Our reading curriculum has been praised and is listed as something that we prioritise in school. We’re proud that we offer ‘effective and purposeful lessons’ to support our students ‘to develop their confidence and fluency’. We are proud to be creating a positive reading and learning experience for all students.

Another praise point was that our students are able to take on different leadership roles within school such as School Council and Eco Council. ‘Pupils take these are always taken seriously and know that they can have a positive impact on others’.

The support we provide to SEND students is described as ‘effective’. We offer tailored support – using practical resources and extra teaching sessions to help these students and their peers learn. 

The ‘Good’ rating is truly a testament to all the hard work put into the school to improve the grading from the previous inspection and is a success for the local community too.

Robyn Parry-McDermott, Headteacher at Thrybergh Primary School, said: “I am extremely proud of our staff, students, and the wider community at Thrybergh Primary School. Everyone has played their part in improving our school over the last few years and it has paid dividends. 

“It’s wonderful to see that our fantastic curriculum and teaching has been recognised by Ofsted. I can’t wait to continue onto the next stage of our WPT and Thrybergh Primary School journey.”

Helen O’Brien, Chief Executive Officer of Wickersley Partnership Trust, said: “Myself and the Wickersley Partnership Trust community are incredibly proud of the improvements Thrybergh Primary School has made over the last few years. It’s fantastic to see our staff and students be recognised for the fantastic work they do day in day out. 

“The whole school community should be proud of this achievement. I look forward to seeing what we can achieve together in the future.”
