Edale CE Primary School


Some quotes from our October 2017 Ofsted review inspection:


 "Leaders and managers are taking effective action towards the removal of special measures."


"All of the specific safeguarding issues identified at the inspection in February 2017 have been dealt with effectively." 


"The school has improved the pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, using a wide-ranging approach. This was reflected in displays around the school and activities taking place in classrooms during this inspection. The activities include opportunities for the pupils to work with the pupils at a partner school. In addition, the pupils visit a school in very different circumstances from Edale." 


"The attention paid to teaching literacy and numeracy is evident in the classrooms. The school has increased its emphasis on reading. Leaders have purchased a good range of new books which have increased the pupils’ interest in reading. The classrooms now contain spaces and resources to encourage the pupils to read. The pupils are starting to take advantage of the new resources and are reading more books and reading more often. The inspector observed a teacher listening to the pupils reading fluently, with confidence and good inflexion."
