Orford school told to improve by Ofsted

Warrington Guardian: Orford school told to improve by Ofsted Orford school told to improve by Ofsted

A SCHOOL in Orford has been told it needs to rapidly improve by Ofsted inspectors.

Beamont Community Primary School was graded as ‘requires improvement’ after inspectors visit the school on January 29 to 30.

The school on O'Leary Street was criticised for the quality of teaching, which is ‘not yet consistently good enough to enable all pupils to make good progress’.

School work was noted as not challenging enough for the most able pupils with some leaving the school with below average standards in reading, writing and maths.

Attendance levels need to improve and handwriting and spelling skills are not taught consistently well across the school.

Despite a number of damning criticisms, school leaders and governors were told they have an accurate view of the school’s strengths and weaknesses.

The quality of teaching is also improving due to the senior leaders’ clear focus on improvement, said inspectors.

my son goes to this school and he is excelling in all subjects. Though I am aware the school needs improving but then again we all need to improve.

"School work was noted as not challenging enough for the most able pupils" ................. its been like that for years. The whole system is designed to concentrate efforts and resources at the "underachievers"

When my daughter was there 10 years ago, the whole set-up was geared to "match the system" and the brightest were ignored.......or were used by the schools to "teach" the less bright. Thankfully being good roles model parents (which may seem surprising as I'm originally from Bewsey and my wife is from Orford) she received lots of encouragement and guidance achieved 10 GCSEs (As), 2 AS levels, 3 A levels and is currently in line for a first in her degree.

Maybe I should just be grateful that our daughter had lots of self-belief, drive, and parents that were not as stupid as MAD4IT.

Possibly because you appear to be following Mad4it by attempting to stereotype an area, and the people who live there.

Bit like saying all those who work in the finance industry are crooks.

And as you live in the countryside yourself I would imagine you also drive a 4X4 for no other reason than having to drive on a few leaves. I also imagine you live in the countryside as you have absolutely no people skills or intelligence to live in normal society! Say hello to the squirrels for me.

A real shame to see such a rapid demise of a once good school. It seems that Beamont has sunk to the bottom of the Warrington Primary league table. Maybe not a surprise given the departure of 27 members of staff in the last 18 months, perhaps the authority should be holding the senior leadership team to account.

Over the last few years my children have attended this school, one of whom is still there now. My children have all excelled here and have been well looked after and educated by all members of staff, both past and present. I have nothing but praise for the teachers, who are fully committed to doing the best for the children there. The Headteacher has made many changes, but these were greatly needed, such as the fact that the children were not receiving the correct directed teaching time. She would not have made these changes alone; there will have been many consultations with governors and the authority. Schools cannot stay the same forever and changes are needed to allow them to move forward again which inevitably takes time. People are quick to criticise, yet only 11 parents completed the parent view forms that gives them the opportunity to have their say. Why not read the full ofsted report and look at all the positive comments too which actually state many improvements and solid plans to increase this further.

Well done your children for excelling my children excelled here and at their new school they are that type of child. I did not want my children being taught in a toxic atmosphere of stress upset and anxiety. The school were given a good before the head started which went to satisfactory and were told to make improvements now they have been told again to make improvements that is not progress.

In January 122 cases in Orford & Longford, Latchford 117 cases, Stockton heath etc 78. Simply out of these three areas it equates to less than 38 % (even before taking into account Woolston, Bewsey, Gt Sankey, Penketh etc). I'm so glad I didnt learn maths at the same school as you .

Well done too to your children. Not all of my children are 'that type of child'. One needs particular encouragement and needs to be shown that high standards are expected and that they can achieve them; the reason my child is excelling is the fact that the staff that have taught my child - including the Headteacher - have supported this ethos and have been fully supportive.
The Ofsted report says: "The headteacher has developed a strong sense of teamwork among all who work in the school and staff morale is high." and "The local authority has worked with governors and school leaders to stabilise staffing. The governing body supported senior leaders in taking decisive action to improve the quality of teaching. Governors hold the school to account and ask searching questions from an increasingly well-informed standpoint."
Everyone is entitled to their own viewpoint, but I wouldn't consider moving my children, as I feel that every member of staff that they have been taught, nurtured and cared for by at Beamont has been worth their weight in gold - including the current Headteacher.

I can imagine the current teachers do work hard for the pupils but the head lacks the social skills to make the improvements needed. Every one is entitled to their opinion I agree and my opinion remains the same regardless of anyone elses experiences I am glad my children are not being subjected to the terrible ethos and atmosphere of the senior staff at that school they are excelling and are happy in a 'good' school not one that requires grave improvements

A real shame to see such a rapid demise of a once good school. It seems that Beamont has sunk to the bottom of the Warrington Primary league table. Maybe not a surprise given the departure of 27 members of staff in the last 18 months, perhaps the authority should be holding the senior leadership team to account.
Completely agree but I feel the local authority do not care about the wellbeing of teaching staff despite their duty of care. I raised concerns via questionnaire last time ofsted were there and nothing came of it. Disappointing

Neither myself nor my children have ever been subjected to a terrible ethos. However maybe a 'good' school should be a personal judgement based on how happy both parents and children are with their experiences within school, their confidence in the while staff and the progress they make, rather than a 2 day 'snapshot'. For my children I regard this school to be Beamont, for you children you feel it is the new school that they attend. At the end of the day each parent will hopefully make the right decisions for their own children. Best wishes to you and your children, I hope they continue to be successful. 😊

Over the last few years my children have attended this school, one of whom is still there now.

I have nothing but praise for the teachers, who are fully committed to doing the best for the children there. The Headteacher has made many changes, but these were greatly needed, such as the fact that the children were not receiving the correct directed teaching time. She would not have made these changes alone; there will have been many consultations with governors and the authority. Schools cannot stay the same forever and changes are needed to allow them to move forward again which inevitably takes time. People are quick to criticise, yet only 11 parents completed the parent view forms that gives them the opportunity to have their say. Why not read the full ofsted report and look at all the positive comments too which actually state many improvements and solid plans to increase this further.
Well done your children for excelling my children excelled here and at their new school they are that type of child. I did not want my children being taught in a toxic atmosphere of stress upset and anxiety. The school were given a good before the head started which went to satisfactory and were told to make improvements now they have been told again to make improvements that is not progress. Brook acre were a coasting school under this head too her reputation is far and wide. The fact is you cannot make progress and improvements without a committed and consistent staff
i would also add to your list of consistencies by including governors, ancillary staff, parents and children. However in the real world consistency is very hard to achieve in such a modern changeable education system.

I don't think you know what you are talking about. What it your source of information? Are you making unfounded allegations and suppersitions?

You have to laugh at the Berk that is Mad4Tit. We all wish that we can live in his utopia watching the gospel according to Jeremy Kyle each day.

Its a sad day when any school in the borough is told to improve.

And to the WG - to be honest if you are going to remove my comments it would probably be better if you removed the posts where people quote them otherwise they can still be seen. If you need some help with this sort of thing I am available at a reasonable daily rate. :)
