Market Deeping Primary School praises staff for positive after two Ofsted inspections
A primary school judged by Ofsted to ‘requires improvement’ last year has had the positive work of its staff praised at two recent inspections.
Market Deeping Primary School has had two monitoring inspections since its ‘quality of education’ and leadership and management’ were flagged up as concerns in January 2020.
The first, which took place in March, focused on the school’s provision during lockdown and evaluated this as ‘effective’.
The inspection report highlighted ‘a typical comment from parents’ which said: “The school has been great during lockdown. The home learning provided has been manageable as a working-at-home parent.”
A more recent visit, at the end of May, concluded: “Leaders and those responsible for governance are taking effective action in order for the school to become a good school.”
Headteacher Mark Ratchford said: “It is very pleasing to have the hard work of our staff team, parents and children during the pandemic recognised so positively by Ofsted.”
