Westoning Lower School was inspected in February 2019 and during the inspection the following was noted:


  • The school continues to be good.

  • The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection.

  • The headteacher and governing body have an accurate view of the strengths of the school and the areas they still want to improve.

  • The school has continued to raise the standard of teaching and learning and so attainment in reading, writing and mathematics at the end of Key Stage 1 has been consistently above the national average for three years.

  • Pupils enjoy coming to school where they are known and treated as individuals. This means that all groups of pupils make good progress from their starting points.

  • Pupils behave well both in class and around the school because they understand the high expectations adults have of them and want to do their best.

  • The curriculum provides a rich and varied diet of topics and enrichment activities that capture the interest of pupils well.

  • The school has raised expectations of what the most able pupils can achieve. Teachers provide learning activities more frequently where these pupils demonstrate their skill and excel in reading, writing and mathematics.

  • Pupils leave Westoning Lower School halfway through key stage 2 and the school recognises that it is important to make sure that they are well prepared to successfully complete this stage of their education at their next school.
