December 2022 - Heronswood Primary School continues to be a good school. There is enough evidence of improved performance to suggest that the school could be judged outstanding if we were to carry out a graded (section 5) inspection now. The school's next inspection will be a graded inspection.

Across the school, staff give their best and expect pupils to do the same. They keep pupils very busy and encourage them to work hard. They also make sure that pupils enjoy their lessons. Indeed, pupils bubble with enthusiasm when they talk about their learning.  Reading is a key strength.  Ofsted - December 2022

 

Strong leadership keeps everyone up to date and continues to drive improvements.  The headteacher has built a capable team. Leaders and staff put pupils first and have established highly effective systems for making sure the right things happen at the right time. From the Nursery onwards, their communication with parents and carers is exceptional.  Since the previous inspection, this strong leadership has continued to improve the school.  Ofsted - December 2022

 

The arrangements for safeguarding are effective. The culture of safeguarding is exceptionally strong. Leaders are very well informed and have established efficient systems for noticing and acting upon concerns.  Ofsted - December 2022

 

Pupils’ behaviour in class is excellent. This allows lessons to run smoothly and any disruptions are rare.  Pupils’ excellent behaviour continues to shine out.  Pupils also have a role in shaping school life. Pupil house captains, school councillors and well-being ambassadors all play their part in making the school a fair and happy place to be.  Ofsted - December 2022
