Oldmixon Ofsted Inspection
In January 2022, Oldmixon Primary School in Weston-super-Mare welcomed an inspector for Ofsted into school for a two day Section 8 inspection.
Oldmixon remained a good school and was praised in many different areas of school life including safeguarding, reading and phonics, children’s behaviour and their work with pupils who have special educational needs.
It was noted how many extra-curricular opportunities there were for all children at Oldmixon providing aspirational and exciting chances for children to learn and grow.
The Ofsted inspector reported that: “Pupils are proud to be part of the Oldmixon ‘family’. Staff know pupils well, and this helps them to feel safe. Pupils enjoy coming to school. They talk positively about the wide range of opportunities provided. Pupils take on roles such as mini police and play leaders. They hold these responsibilities in high esteem. Staff work together to provide opportunities to develop pupils’ independence and resilience.”
Corinna Sutton, Headteacher at Oldmixon said: “'We are extremely proud of our Ofsted report which reflects the dedication and hard work of the Oldmixon team. The highlight of the report is our wonderful children - their exemplary behaviour, strength of character and enthusiasm for their learning. As stated in the report - 'Pupils' conduct, both in lessons and around the school, is strong. Pupils show respect and kindness to all around them. They encourage and support each other in their learning.' We couldn't be prouder of the Oldmixon family.”
As a trust, we are so proud of Oldmixon too. The staff and children are a credit to the school. It always feels lovely and so welcoming when we go and visit. Congratulations Oldmixon. You should be very proud of yourselves.
