Telford school rated 'good' by Ofsted

The quality of teaching at a school in Telford has been rated as "good" by education inspectors.


Muxton Primary School, in Marshbrook Way, was visited in July by Ofsted inspectors and a newly-published report has revealed it has been keeping up standards since its previous inspection in 2013.

The report says the headteacher has maintained a good quality of education and leaders have a clear overview of where strengths and areas for improvement lie.

Inspectors said the school provided a caring and nurturing environment in which pupils can thrive.

The report said: "Pupils are polite, mature and highly responsible.

"They work hard and are keen to succeed.

"You ensure that pupils’ voices are well represented in the school, for example through pupils’ participation in the Muxton Safeguarding Voice (MSV).

"Pupils enjoy school and describe their teachers as ‘wonderful’ and ‘inspirational’.

"They benefit from a wide range of curricular opportunities and there is good evidence in their books and on display of the broad range of work they cover."

Inspectors said the safeguarding culture within the school is strong and there were "effective recruitment procedures" as well as "positive leadership".

Governance was also described as strong, with inspectors saying that "governors use their wide range of professional skills ably to support and challenge leaders".
