Wellsprings Primary School getting back on track after OFSTED judgement
PROGRESS at a Taunton primary school has been praised after it was judged as ‘failing’ by OFSTED a year ago.
Over a quarter of lessons at Wellsprings Primary School have been rated ‘outstanding’ by a Government inspector, while the rest were mostly ‘good’.
Pupils were deemed to be making good progress, notably in English.
Head teacher Mark Lunn said: “It’s rare for a school in our circumstances to be given such a positive report only two visits into a process which can take two years.
“It certainly reflects all the hard work which has taken place here.
“The inspector was extremely impressed by how we’ve improved and that we’ve also created a broad and exciting curriculum.
“The children are already more involved in their own learning, and members of the school community, including the teachers, parent champions and governors, are all working hard to create a school which will continue to be judged ‘good’ and aspire to be ‘outstanding’.”
The Crowcombe Road school was put in special measures after an insp-ection in March, 2011, concluded that it did not provide an acceptable education and that attainment was below average.
