Windwhistle welcome Ofsted visit
‘We love coming to school so we can learn more.’ – Windwhistle pupils
In March 2022, Windwhistle Primary School in Weston-super-Mare welcomed inspectors for Ofsted into school for a two day Section 8 inspection.
Windwhistle remained a good school and was praised in many different areas of school life including safeguarding, early years, children’s behaviour and reading.
It was noted how children benefit from many opportunities outside of the classroom to help prepare them for the future personally and to develop their knowledge and understanding of the world around them.
The Ofsted inspector reported that: “Pupils at Windwhistle Primary School demonstrate the school’s values. They are ‘happy, respectful, resilient, confident and independent’. Staff have high aspirations for every pupil within the school. Pupils learn well from their starting points, including pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND).One pupil, whose view reflected that of many, said, ‘We love coming to school so we can learn more.’.”
Lyn Hunt, Headteacher at Windwhistle said: “'We are extremely proud of our Ofsted report which reflects the dedication and hard work of the Windwhistle 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 Windwhistle family. We thank everyone involved with life at Windwhistle; staff, children, ELAN and our whole school community for their support not only with the inspection but for all that they do every day to make our school an inclusive, inspirational and safe place in which to learn and play.”
Congratulations Windwhistle - each and every one of you play an important part and you should be proud of everything you have achieved. All of us are proud of you too!
