Tilney All Saints C of E Primary School continues to be a good school, according to OfSTED – the Office for Standards in Education.

An inspector said the leadership team of the school near King’s Lynn had maintained the good quality of education since its previous inspection.

She also said Executive Headteacher Anne Senior’s strong and effective leadership had ensured the school had continued to improve since joining the Diocese of Ely Multi-Academy Trust (DEMAT) in 2015.

“You have developed a strong leadership team that plays a full part in securing improvement. Morale is high and staff say they are proud to be members of this school.

“Your aspirations for this small village school are shared by everyone. You, your senior leaders, staff and governors have created an environment in which every child feels valued,” said the inspector’s report.

The inspector found pupils were happy in school and enjoyed their learning and worked with diligence and enthusiasm.

“They show respect and tolerance to one another. Pupils behave very well in lessons and around school because of the positive relationships they have with staff and the school’s high expectations of behaviour,” the report added.

The inspector highlighted the way the school had improved the skills of leaders, teachers and teaching assistants through quality training and sharing best practice.

Her report also praised the culture of effective safeguarding at the school. “The caring and attentive culture which runs through the school and the trust that pupils have in all staff ensures that pupils are safe and always feel secure.”

The inspector also confirmed that the Executive Headteacher and Local  Governing Body had evaluated the school’s effectiveness accurately and concisely.

Rating all areas of the school as good, she encouraged the new approaches in reading, writing and maths to be further developed ‘so that they continue to improve pupils’ attainment and progress’.

Executive Headteacher Anne Senior said: “We are all very pleased with such a positive report. It  confirmed the school’s own judgements, and relects the high quality provision offered to our children by dedicated staff and stakeholders.”

Andrew Read, Chief Executive of DEMAT added: “I am delighted that inspectors recognised the hard work of all the staff and children at the school, and the contribution of the trust to helping make this such a successful school.”
