Camblesforth Community Primary Academy, with 96 pupils, was inspected in November and rated good overall. Last time, it was graded as requires improvement.
“Pupils are proud of their school,” says the report. Camblesforth is “welcoming and inclusive,” and pupils feel safe and happy.
Head teacher Dave Card said: “We are all delighted with such a positive report. We feel it accurately reflects the commitment to our learning and to our community every day by children, staff, parents, carers and governors. It is a privilege to be headteacher of a school where everyone cares for each other, the quality of education is high and happiness abounds.”
In the report, leadership and management, behaviour and attitudes, personal development, and quality of education are good, as well as early years provision, which is outstanding.
The report describes how the school provides a varied set of personal development experiences for pupils, including educational visits and residentials trips.
Pupils talk proudly of their leadership roles and have an excellent understanding of democracy. Pupils participate in sports and music, and there are plentiful opportunities for extra-curricular activities.
Inspectors also said that in a minority of foundation subjects, the curriculum is not fully developed. Gail Brown, chief executive of Ebor Academy Trust, said: “This is an excellent, well-deserved report and many congratulations to Mr Card and the staff.”
Ebor Academy Trust comprises 23 schools in York, Selby, Hull and East Riding and on the Yorkshire coast.
