A Moorlands village primary school has received a ‘good’ report from a Government inspector. Dilhorne Endowed CE Primary School received a visit from an Ofsted inspector in May, and have since received a ‘Good’ judgement overall, with two elements receiving their highest grade of ‘Outstanding.’ This is an improvement from the previous ‘Requiring Improvement’ Ofsted report that the school received.

A Moorlands village primary school has received a ‘good’ report from a Government inspector.

Dilhorne Endowed CE Primary School received a visit from an Ofsted inspector in May, and have since received a ‘Good’ judgement overall, with two elements receiving their highest grade of ‘Outstanding.’ This is an improvement from the previous ‘Requiring Improvement’ Ofsted report that the school received.

Inspectors spent two days at the school, meeting with parents, trustees, leaders from school and The Moorlands Primary Federation (the local Multi-Academy Trust of which Dilhorne Endowed C.E. Primary is part), staff and children.

The report, published by Ofsted last week, said that ‘Behaviour and Attitudes’ are Outstanding and ‘Early Years Provision’ is also Outstanding. ‘The Quality of Education’, ‘Personal Development’ and ‘Leadership and Management’ each received a judgement of Good, which was also the overall judgement of the school.

A spokesman at the school said: “The result represents a highly positive journey since the last report in June 2018, where the school was judged as ‘Requiring Improvement.’

Since then, a new leadership structure has been embedded along with changes to the teaching team and the curriculum.

Dilhorne Endowed CE Primary School also offers children the chance to work with different animals and develop a range of practical skills through their onsite farm.”

Within their report, the Ofsted inspector said: “Pupils at this school flourish;” and “Pupils’ behaviour and attitudes are exemplary.”

They added: “Leaders have high aspirations for what pupils can achieve;” and “Children get off to an excellent start in Reception.”

Speaking of the result, five-year-old pupil Leo said: “It is good because I love learning.”

Eight-year-old Grace said: “I feel happy with the report because Dilhorne is great.”

And Tilly, aged 11, added: “I am delighted with the Ofsted report. Dilhorne is a good school where the teachers go above and beyond to give us a good education.”

School Leader, Craig Broome, said: “It has been a four-year journey to move to Good with Outstanding areas.

Here at Dilhorne Endowed CE Primary, we have a wonderful school where our children really thrive in many different ways.

Within our school, we all have high aspirations for our pupils who, with such important support from their families, develop into good citizens.

Chief Executive Officer of The Moorlands Primary Federation (TMPF) and the school’s Executive Principal, Jared Eccles, said: “We are thrilled with Ofsted’s decision. The children highlighted how fabulous they are throughout the visit – which took place during the Key Stage 2 SATs week.

The parents and carers have played a significant part on our road to this judgement, in the way that they have supported their children and their school.

The different trustees involved with the school have also fulfilled an important role in this success and we appreciate and value their time and commitment.

Across TMPF, we work closely as a team, and over the past few years, it has been lovely to see the support from colleagues within our family of schools which has been given to one another, and this outcome reflects the value of that.”

Kay Hulse, Link Trustee for the school said: “The Ofsted judgement of Good with Outstanding features is a fantastic result and absolutely a true reflection of our lovely, caring school.

I thank the staff for all of their incredible hard work in achieving this – they are a wonderful team. Of course, I also thank the amazing pupils for showing what the Dilhorne Endowed C.E. Primary School family is all about.

We are very proud of them.”

Chair of The Moorlands Primary Federation trust board, Nick Chesters, added: “The judgement of Good with several Outstanding features is an amazing achievement and is a testament to how hard everyone associated with the school, and across our trust, has worked over a number of years.”
