Tuxford Primary Academy was last inspected by Ofsted in October 2014, and we were delighted to receive an overall judgement ‘Good’.

Some of the highlights from the report are outlined below:

  • Tuxford Primary Academy is a rapidly improving happy school, where pupils feel safe and well cared for
  • The Principal has a very strong vision for the school. Staff and governors share her determination to improve further the quality of teaching, pupils’ progress and standards by the end of Year 6
  • Children get off to a good start in the Early Years Foundation Stage. They make good progress and achieve well
  • Pupils’ progress is accelerating rapidly in all year groups. Standards are rising quickly and all groups of pupils, including disabled pupils and those with special educational needs, and the more able achieve well
  • Pupils are proud of their school and behave well. Their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is promoted effectively
  • There are rigorous systems in place to check pupils’ knowledge and understanding, and the progress they are making
  • Staff have a good understanding of the abilities and needs of all pupils. Good teaching encourages and motivates pupils of all abilities to want to learn and give of their best
  • Attendance has improved markedly over the last year
  • The school’s work to keep pupils safe is good. Parents acknowledge and appreciate the care and support provided by the school for themselves and their children
