Inspection and Reports

Ofsted Report

Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. They report directly to the government, the Department for Education, and they are independent and impartial. They inspect and regulate services which care for children and young people, including schools and those providing education and skills for learners of all ages.

We are delighted to say that in February 2015 Ofsted graded Sunny Bank Primary School as a 'good school'. We are proud to be shaping our children’s future in such a positive way.


These are some of the comments taken from the report:


The school effectively promotes British values. Tolerance and respect thread through all aspects of pupils’ daily lives.

Pupils behave well and are proud of their school. They show care and consideration for others and are polite and well mannered. Attendance is above average.

Pupils are happy, feel safe and secure and know there is always someone to turn to if they have a problem. Attitudes to work are excellent.

The school provides a rich variety of learning opportunities. The use of information technology by teachers and pupils to support learning is a strength.

Governors challenge the school well and have gone out of their way to make sure they have the skills to do this effectively.

Sunny Bank Primary School - Published Ofsted Inspection Report Mar 15


In January 2013 we received an interim assessment statement from Ofsted which said

 'I am pleased to inform you that the interim assessment of your child’s school indicates that the school’s performance has been sustained'.

This takes into account:

  • pupils’ attainment, including the attainment of significant groups of pupils with a focus on disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs, and pupils’ attainment in core subjects
  • pupils’ progress, including the progress made by different groups of pupils
  • pupils’ attendance
  • any inspection visits carried out by Ofsted since the last routine inspection
  • qualifying complaints about the school referred to Ofsted by parents or carers
  • results from Parent View
  • any other significant issues brought to Ofsted’s attention, including from the relevant local authority. I am pleased to inform you that our interim assessment shows that the school’s performance has been sustained and that we can defer its next full inspection.

Prior to that we were inspected in January 2010 where OFSTED stated that we were a good school where ‘pupils from all backgrounds are treated equally and work in harmony.’ All groups of children achieve well and reach challenging targets.

Parents commented ‘The school endeavours to get the best out of every child.
