Behaviour is outstanding says Ofsted
CHILDREN at St Teath Primary School are extremely well behaved – and that's official.
An Ofsted inspection was carried out at the school last month and the final report has just been released saying it was graded as "good" overall with a judgement of "outstanding" for behaviour and safety of children.
Lee Bacchus, who is head teacher at both St Teath and St Breward, is delighted.
"The pupils, staff and governors are really pleased that the report represents how much progress the school has made with a particular emphasis on the caring, supportive ethos of the school and the outstanding behaviour of the pupils," said Mr Bacchus.

"The staff are a very hardworking team who deserve to have their efforts recognised within the context of a very supportive community of governors, parents and village members, who all contribute to the success of the school. It is also a tribute to the strength of the federation of St Teath and St Breward CP Schools."
The report highlights that strong leadership from the executive head teacher, supported by the governing body and the staff, has led to significant improvements, particularly in teaching and achievement.
Pupils' progress by the end of Year 6 is now good, regardless of their starting points and of any special needs. Attainment has improved steadily, although it remains broadly average overall.
Teaching is good, says the report. Teachers' subject knowledge is used well to set high expectations for pupils. Good marking and targets for improvement mean that pupils understand how they can do better.
Children make a good start in Reception, with good progress in a caring classroom with good teaching.
"Pupils' behaviour is outstanding and they flourish within the very caring and supportive atmosphere. Pupils report they feel very safe in the school," said Ofsted.
