All Saints’ Thurlestone is an Ofsted Good school

Following the Ofsted inspection of All Saints’ Thurlestone C of E Academy at the end of the Autumn Term, the proud staff and children have been celebrating the judgement that the school continues to be a Good school.

The report stated:

“Pupils thrive in this friendly and welcoming school. The school’s values are the bedrock of life at Thurlestone. Love, honesty, respect, forgiveness, service and thankfulness sum up what it is like to be a pupil at this school. Staff instil these values into pupils as soon as they start their learning journey. This prepares pupils well both socially and academically.

Pupils behave extremely well in lessons and at social times. This is because high expectations are ingrained from the moment pupils start in Reception. Pupils listen
carefully in lessons and respond swiftly to adults. They work hard in lessons because they know learning is important. They say that bullying is not acceptable and are adamant that it does not happen. Pupils told us that they feel safe in school and that adults respond quickly to any concerns or worries they may have.

Teachers provide many rich opportunities that extend beyond the classroom. Staff are keen to make sure pupils are well prepared for life in modern Britain. Recently, pupils worked alongside the National Marine Aquarium to promote to the wider world the impact of plastic in the ocean. This is just one of many examples.”

All Saints’ Thurlestone is proud to be a member of the Learning Academy Partnership (Multi Academy Trust) and the team live and breathe the Trust’s 6 Principles of Excellence, ensuring the number one priority is the children.
