Barrow Hedges Primary School

Ofsted and Standards

In this section...

We last had an Ofsted Inspection in April 2022. The outcome was: "Barrow Hedges 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 section 5 inspection."

The inspection report states that: "Pupils are happy, safe and well cared for at this large, welcoming school. All staff have the highest expectations of behaviour and pupils meet these well. The school’s core values of care, honesty, respect and responsibility are understood and modelled by all. Leaders expect all pupils to achieve highly. They have clearly defined key learning in every subject. They train staff exceptionally well, so that staff understand the intended learning and how to teach it. This means that all pupils, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) achieve well. Pupils know what bullying is, but are adamant that it does not happen at their school. They are confident that adults would sort any issues should these occur. They would happily confide in any member of staff with their worries. Pupils are provided with a range of opportunities to enhance learning. Pupils in Year 5 went on a residential trip to France and practised their language skills. There are also residential trips offered in Years 4 and 6, each with a curriculum focus. Pupils take responsibility seriously and can apply for various leadership roles. One example is the ‘Horis Hippos’, who are older pupils who lead playground activities for their younger peers."
