Penketh Celebrates Successful Ofsted Report

22 May 23
STAFF and pupils at Penketh Primary School are celebrating after the publication of a successful Ofsted report.

The school, which is part of Warrington Primary Academy Trust (WPAT), was visited by an inspection team in March and leaders have now learned that the school has been assessed as good in all areas.

Inspectors praised the caring attitude of staff and noted leaders’ high expectations of the pupils’ behaviour and learning.
“As a result, the school is calm and pupils, including children in the early years get on with their learning. Pupils achieve well,” they said.

The inspectors remarked that leaders promoted pupils’ personal development well and that pupils benefitted from a range of after-school activities, including football, choir and rugby.

“Leaders have ensured that all pupils, including those with SEND, study an ambitious curriculum,” the inspectors noted, adding: “Subject leaders have thought carefully about the curriculum content and the order in which this is to be taught across key stages 1 and 2.”

Headteacher Rebecca Kayll said: “Penketh is a successful school because of the hard work of everyone in our team and their non-stop focus on doing their very best for our children, so it is really gratifying to have those efforts recognised in such a positive inspection report.”
