Holland Park Primary School celebrate Good Ofsted rating

Staff and students at Holland Park Primary School are celebrating after achieving a Good Ofsted rating across all areas.

Considerate and polite pupils who take pride in their work were highlighted in the report at the Clacton-based primary school, which also paid tribute to the school’s ambitious and balanced curriculum.

Proud headteacher Matthew Moseley said: “This is a report in recognition of everyone’s hard work and working together – staff, students and our entire school community alike.

“What is particularly lovely is that the report found in two days what we see in school every single day.

“We would like to thank everyone who helped contribute to such a good inspection and we look forward to building on it in the months and years to come.”

The school in Holland Road was awarded a Good rating across all areas of the inspection – quality of education, behaviour, personal development, leadership and early years provision.

Inspectors wrote: “Pupils enjoy attending Holland Park. The staff create an environment for all pupils to feel safe. The relationships they build enable this to happen.

“Pupils look forward to learning and take pride in their work. This is because the teachers encourage pupils to work hard and inspire them with interesting lessons.

“In the early years, children take turns and listen carefully to each other and adults. They talk with increasing confidence. Children are engaged and excited about their learning. Children sustain their concentration and build independence that prepares them well for Key Stage 1.”

Pupils’ development was also said to be of “high priority” with a strong pastoral system in place to supports pupils’ learning through the personal social, health and economic (PSHE) curriculum.

The report added: “PSHE focusses on well-being, being safe and character development. Consequently, pupils learn about healthy relationships, staying safe online and needing to understand and respect difference.”
