Ofsted praises pupils hard work and good behaviour at Dame Janet Primary Academy

Dame Janet Primary Academy retains its Good grading from Ofsted

Dame Janet Primary Academy in Ramsgate has celebrated the release of its latest Ofsted report, having demonstrated to its inspector that it continues to be a good school.

Following an inspection in March the school retains the good grading received in 2018.

Inspectors noted the school has designed a curriculum that ‘is ambitious for all pupils’ and provides pupils with SEND (special educational needs/disabilities) ‘the right support that meets their individual needs’. Pupils also ‘enjoy a wide range of experiences’ and the school places an emphasis on ‘emotional well-being’.

The report identifies that children at the school achieve well, last year the school was above both the Kent and national average for pupils reaching the expected level in reading, writing and maths.

The Ofsted report says pupils “get the support they need to develop into well-rounded individuals who are ready for the next stage of their education.”

The report also highlighted how the school prioritises reading and that pupils “who fall behind with reading receive effective extra support and time to practise” helping them to become confident and fluent readers.

Dame Janet’s pupils were praised for enjoying their school “because they see the value in the educational experiences offered to them.”

Areas for improvement were increasing continuity of teaching in new curriculum subjects and developing teachers’ expertise and the processes they use to identify and address any gaps in pupils’ knowledge.

The report concludes: “Staff and pupils are rightly proud of their school community.”

Executive Headteacher Sam Atkinson said: “We are delighted for our pupils, their families and our staff who worked so hard to achieve this fantastic outcome.

“It is also a testament to the leaders of the school, Gemma Sherwin and Linzi Bradbury, for the continuing hard work they put in to make Dame Janet such a successful and welcoming school.”

Dame Janet Primary Academy is part of The Kemnal Academies Trust (TKAT).
