A picture of overall improvement in care, education and skills in Lambeth has been highlighted in Ofsted’s annual report, which judged 16 Lambeth primary and nursery schools as ‘outstanding’.
One of the schools judged to be outstanding for the fourth time is Sudbourne Primary School in Hayter Road, Brixton. Liz Elsom, Ofsted’s Divisional Manager for Inspection Development, Education and Care, personally visited the school on Tuesday to highlight their provision of outstanding quality of education and care.
“I am delighted to be here today to congratulate the headteacher, staff and governors of Sudbourne Primary School on their hard work and success in delivering such a high standard of education; and the pupils for the excellent progress they make,” she said.
“The school has done well in maintaining a consistently high standard as this is the fourth time the school has been judged to be outstanding.”
Ofsted inspectors recognised the school as outstanding because of the emphasis placed on creativity and inclusion throughout the school. The report also highlighted the fact that pupils enjoy “all aspects” of school life, which is “shown in their eagerness to attend school,” and the “popularity of the school clubs”.
Milan Stevanovic, Headteacher, said: “We strive to create a stimulating learning environment that equips every child in our care with basic life skills and then we look to extend these skills further. There is strong community cohesion within the school and a particularly strong partnership between the school and parents, which helps children to achieve their full potential.”
Councillor Paul McGlone, Lambeth Council Cabinet Member for Children and Young People’s Services, said: “I am delighted that the vast majority of our primary schools have been recognised by Ofsted inspectors as being either good or outstanding. The education of all children in Lambeth is of paramount importance to the council and these Ofsted results pay tribute to that fact.”
