Outstanding school celebrated

Posted onPosted on 2nd Jun

Parents, pupils and staff at Crescent Primary School, Mansfield, are celebrating after Ofsted rated it Outstanding.

Inspectors said the school, which provided an exceptional education for its pupils and the school, strives to give pupils a rich set of experiences they may not otherwise have access to.

Coun Sam Smith, cabinet member for Education and SEND at Nottinghamshire County Council, is pictured visiting the school with his deputy, Coun Nigel Moxon, and Coun Sinead Anderson.

Sam said: “This is a wonderful Ofsted report for Crescent Primary, and I’d like to thank my fellow councillors for inviting me to see for myself what an exceptional school it is.

Inspectors praised the school on its exemplary behaviour from children in lessons and around the school, and referenced that Key Stages 1 and 2 pupils displayed consistently positive attitudes to learning.

The report also referred to excellent subject knowledge from passionate and caring staff, and their expert ability to explain new concepts to children and adapt lessons for all learners, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND).

Headteacher Rachel Spray added: “We are so proud to have received this report from Ofsted. It’s a real honour to be a part of such an incredible school that goes above and beyond to ensure that the needs of our children are met with encouragement and an inclusive and nurturing attitude.

“I’d also like to thank our brilliant staff, families, and children for their continued input and commitment. Our aim is for every child to be the best version of themselves every day in all that they do, and I believe that the children at Crescent Primary School are capable of this and so much more.

“I’m confident that we’ll continue to deliver an exceptional level of education.”
