‘GOOD’ Ofsted Judgement for Tudor Primary School

11 June 2018

Staff and pupils at Tudor Church of England Primary School in Sudbury are celebrating the publication of the recent Ofsted inspection report.  The school, with a pupil roll of about 250 children, has officially been told it is a good school. The report noted numerous successes in improving standards in English, maths, writing, the national phonics check, and developing reception year children.

Mrs Liz Campbell, Headteacher said: “We are all absolutely delighted.  Everyone at Tudor works hard to provide the best possible education for the children and the inspectors recognised the progress that has been made.  We were praised for our significant progress in raising standards in English and Mathematics across the school in early years, key stage 1 and key stage 2 and for the rich curriculum and enhancement opportunities which all children can enjoy.

Ofsted recognised the primary school as a centre of ‘HOPE’, which stands for ‘High expectations, Outstanding Outcomes, People Matter and Enriching Lives’. This, says the school, is what it strives to achieve every day.

The Early Years department run by the deputy head Mrs Emma Ince was noted as being “Outstanding.’’

“They know each child well, plan to meet their individual needs, and work closely with families to support each child’s progress,” said the report. 

This was the primary school’s first inspection since joining the St Edmundsbury and Ipswich Diocesan Multi-Academy Trust three years ago, and it was the very first school within the MAT.

Jane Sheat, CEO of the St Edmundsbury and Ipswich Diocesan Multi Academy Trust, said: “The MAT is a strong and growing collaborative network of church primary schools in Suffolk and we now have 16 schools.  I am pleased that Ofsted recognised that the support and challenge which we provide is very effective and that Tudor also contributes to the success of other schools.  Being part of the MAT brings benefits for staff and pupils as we share good practice and work together to provide high quality teaching and learning across our schools.”

The Rt Revd Martin Seeley, Bishop of the St Edmundsbury and Ipswich Diocese, said: “We are committed to providing a high standard of education in our schools, rooted in Christian values. This is a richly deserved result, and I am sure the school will go from strength to strength.”
