Peterhouse school in Gorleston praised by Ofsted
An east Norfolk primary school is celebrating after Ofsted removed it from special measures and praised its good leadership, teaching and behaviour.
Inspectors said that in some classes at Peterhouse Primary School, in Gorleston, learning and progress were proceeding at a much faster rate than would be expected.
They said the school had good capacity for sustained improvement and that standards in Key Stage 2 this year were likely to be close to or exceed the national average.
The school was placed in special measures last March. Inspectors said that “pupils’ low attainment on entry to school no longer inhibits their learning. Progress is increasing quickly in all year groups.”
The report said: “In class, pupils’ attitudes to learning are now much improved.
“They are proud of their achievement and are developing higher expectations for themselves as well as improved confidence in their own abilities.”
Care, guidance and support for pupils were also judged good by inspectors in yesterday’s report, as was the leadership and management of teaching and learning.
