Ofsted Report

Following an inspection in June 2022, Brunel Primary and Nursery Academy has received a glowing Ofsted report, with judgements of ‘Good’ in all areas, and judgements of ‘Outstanding’ in Early Years Provision and Personal Development. 

Bridge Schools trust has been recognised as a key factor in the significant improvements to the quality of provision for pupils. The report states that; ‘With the support of the trust, school leaders and staff have worked hard to transform the quality of education. They have a shared vision of excellence. Together, leaders and staff have raised the aspirations and expectations of all pupils.’

The report refers not only to the high expectations, high-quality curriculum and high standards of work achieved, but also acknowledges the emphasis and importance we place on developing and nurturing the whole child, their character development and mental and physical wellbeing.  Ofsted inspectors acknowledged the ‘very strong personal, social and health education curriculum and found that the development of pupils’ characters is exemplary.’  The strong foundations for successful academic and personal development are built in the Early Years and it is gratifying that the outstanding start we provide for children in our nursery and reception classes has been recognised. Inspectors spoke of the way in which the curriculum has been ‘expertly planned … to ignite learning’ and how it nurtures curiosity ‘exceptionally well’. ‘Children in Nursery and Reception thrive.’
