Lowick C of E First School Ofsted Report

Lowick C of E First School was inspected on 4th and 5th June 2019.  The inspector noted that “Together, they have quickly forged a strong team with a united approach.” 

Teachers “have strong subject knowledge and plan work which challenges and inspires pupils” and our curriculum is “creative and challenging for all….enriched through a wide range of educational experiences, visits and visitors”.   In particular, Early Years provision provides “a wide range of stimulating and challenging learning opportunities which match the interests and needs of the pupils….Children are able to be curious, manage risks, investigate and explore.” 

Teaching assistants “have positive relationships with pupils and use questioning well to help encourage pupils to learn”.  Our governors have been recognised as a “strength of the school”.  Pupils are described as having “positive attitudes towards each other and are well mannered….[they] work together co-operatively in lessons and are confident to discuss their learning.” 

Our favourite part of the whole report is the quote from a parent, which says that “I don’t think my child would be as happy in any other school.”
