A LOCAL primary school has turned its fortunes around after being rated as ‘good’ in its latest Ofsted.

Barugh Green Primary School, based on Higham Common Road, was told it required improvement by Ofsted inspectors at its previous inspection in December 2021.

However, after being assessed again in February, the latest report shows the school has now improved.

A report states: “Leaders have high expectations for pupil behaviour and achievement; both are realised. Pupils are polite and behave well throughout the school day. They engage with the curriculum and achieve well.

“Relationships between adults and pupils are caring and respectful. Pupils can go to adults with any concerns and these will be taken seriously. Bullying is rare. However, if it happens, pupils can confidently tell an adult who successfully sorts it out.

“Pupils get the opportunity to develop their talents and interest. Pupils get the opportunity to take part in competitions. These include athletics and dance competitions. Pupils learn musical instruments and attend choir club.

“Pupils get the chance to apply what they learn. This is through musical performances within the school and externally.”
