Be Curious – Believe – Challenge – Achieve

Ofsted Report

Middle Barton Primary School continues to be a good school.

Pupils are overwhelmingly proud of their school. One pupil stated, ‘This is the best school in the world.’ Adults have high expectations for behaviour and pupils rise to these.

At this school pupils are free to choose who they want to be. Equality, inclusion and diversity weave through all that they do. One pupil who recently joined the school told an inspector, ‘I feel so welcomed here.’

Leaders are ambitious for all pupils at this school, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). Leaders have made deliberate choices about the curriculum pupils learn. Pupils told inspectors how much they enjoy the practical elements of learning as this brings the curriculum alive for them. They especially enjoy learning in the outdoor classroom and their walks around the village to learn about road safety, or to spot a waterfall or a Victorian house.
