Lincoln school gets improved Ofsted grading

Our Lady of Lincoln Catholic Primary School achieved a ‘Good’ grading after an Ofsted inspection in February.

The school, which was graded as ‘Satisfactory’ at its previous inspection in September 2010, has made rapid progress because “senior leaders, including the governors, ably led by the head teacher, have worked effectively to improve the school.”

Lead inspector Terry McDermott highlighted the outstanding start that the pupils make right from reception year, and that pupils continue to build on this and make good progress through Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.

Outstanding teaching was also observed in the report for the majority of year groups in the school.

Head Teacher Julia Summers said: “We are delighted that both staff and pupils have been given this very well deserved credit and that our children have been recognised as calm, friendly and ‘unfailingly polite’.

“The report is testimony to the dedication and commitment of our whole school community. We are now working hard to make sure that these outstanding areas are embedded across the whole school and we are really excited about the next stage in our school’s journey.”

Our Lady of Lincoln Catholic Primary School on Laughton Way is an inclusive Catholic primary school.
