Our school is Outstanding and you can join us

Our school was awarded Outstanding statuses across the board by Ofsted in our most recent report and your child can be part of our success story.


Find out more information at our open mornings and afternoons which are being held from September 30 to January 9.


Strong leadership, exemplary behaviour, strong progress and teaching of a ‘very high standard’ were all highlighted by inspectors in the report published in June 2018, which saw all five key areas graded Outstanding.


“The inspirational headteacher has played a pivotal role in the creation of the new school. She leads a strong team of equally committed and passionate staff who drive improvements. As a result, pupils benefit from an outstanding education,” says the report.


“Teaching and learning are of a very high standard across the school. Teaching and support staff are enthusiastic and skilled in getting the very best out of pupils,” it continues.


To be awarded Outstanding in all areas is a great achievement by everyone here at Chestnut Park Primary School. All our staff, governors, pupils, parents and the whole team celebrated the news and we continue to build on such wonderful success.


We strive to bring out the very best in all our pupils and the Ofsted report has highlighted numerous areas of which we can all be extremely proud.


“Leaders receive highly effective support to carry out their roles. They benefit from working within the wider GLF Schools Trust in partnership with colleagues and from sharing good practice. Leaders ensure that high-quality professional development opportunities are available for all staff,” the report says.


“The school’s clear routines and expectations mean that pupils get the most out of learning time. All staff have high expectations of pupils. Pupils respond well and are engaged purposefully in their learning. They demonstrate a curiosity for learning by asking questions of staff and each other.”


Inspectors found that pupils were proud to be at their school and felt valued and parents said they had also developed strong working relationships with staff.


“Teachers have consistently high expectations. As a result, the quality of presentation is high in all subject areas. Pupils take great pride in their work. This is evident in their books and displayed work,” the report says.


Open mornings are being held on Monday, September 30, October 14, November 21, December 9, January 9 and afternoons on November 27 and January 9.
