Holy Trinity Primary School rated “good” by Ofsted

Holy Trinity Primary School, Bradley Stoke

Bradley Stoke’s Holy Trinity Primary School has been rated “good” by Ofsted inspectors, who visited the school earlier this month.

The team of three inspectors observed approximately seven hours of lessons at the 201-pupil school, which is located in Broad Croft, off Pear Tree Road.

Questionnaire responses from 70 parents and carers, 95 pupils and 12 staff were also evaluated as part of the inspection.

The report begins:

“Holy Trinity Primary a good school because the staff team know each pupil well and consequently youngsters enjoy their education.”

The school’s values, such as patience and gentleness, are said to underpin all aspects of school life. Consequently:

“Pupils are, and feel, safe, and work and play well together.”

Behaviour at the voluntary aided faith school is said to be “good”.

Inspectors say the school needs to further develop the consistency of challenge in lessons, with mathematics and literacy identified as requiring attention in this regard.

The latest report for Holy Trinity confirms the “good” grade awarded in 2008.

Of the six primary schools in Bradley Stoke, five are rated “good” and one (St Mary’s RC) “outstanding”.
