Ripley Endowed Church of England Primary School was recently visited by Ofsted for a two-day inspection with the final report now being finalised. The school is rated ‘Good’. In 2021 was rated an Inadequate.
The school community have welcomed the new rating achieved after 18 months of hard work.
A key priority was the curriculum: a world-class curriculum model that, when implemented with rigour and consistency, ensured children receive educational excellence from the offset.
Miss Kirkman, who is Executive Headteacher across several rural primary schools said: “I am incredibly proud of all the schools I lead and am wholly committed to improving the future sustainability of small, rural primary schools thus the future life chances of the children who attend.”
Andrew Jones, MP for Ripley, commented: “I am pleased that Ripley School has been able to improve and I know that this Ofsted rating is the culmination of much hard work from staff, parents and the wider community. Congratulations to them on this great result.”
