Highgate Infant School celebrates another ‘Good’ Ofsted Report


Staff and pupils at Highgate Infant School, King’s Lynn are proud to announce today (Tuesday 5 November) that after an Ofsted inspection earlier this month their school received another ‘good’ rating.

The school has been judged as ‘good’ in all four areas of the inspection across the board. Inspectors praised the standard of teaching at the school and said ‘progress is good throughout and attainment is above average by the end of year two in writing and mathematics’.

Pupils also told Ofsted, ‘that teacher’s make their lessons fun and help them when they find the work hard’.

Ellie Roberts, Headteacher at Highgate Infant School, said: “We are delighted and all very proud of this report.”

“We have a very committed staff who are always looking for ways to improve their practise to provide the best outcomes for our pupils.  We also work hard to develop strong links with our families and cluster of schools to provide exciting opportunities to give the children at Highgate the best start and to have high aspirations for the future.”

Highgate Infant School has already implemented an action plan to progress towards ‘outstanding’ (Ofsted’s highest ranking). “Our school motto is –aim HIGH GATEway to success”, added Mrs Roberts.

Ofsted also commended the leadership and management of the school, describing it as being ‘key to the school’s successes’. The school was also praised for its effective use of pupil premium funding ‘to support disadvantaged pupils, and they attain at least as well as others in school’.
