A Herefordshire Primary School has been described as ‘welcoming and caring’ in a recent report from Ofsted.

An inspection of Bridstow Primary School near Ross-on-Wye took place on the 6th and 7th December 2022.

The Ofsted inspection rated the school as a ‘good’ school.

The report states:

“This is a welcoming and caring school. Parents say that staff are very nurturing towards the children and that children love going to school. 

“Pupils agree, saying that they enjoy coming to school to ‘work together, grow together and flourish together’.

“Pupils show sensitivity towards one another. They look after each other and play calmly together. Pupils say that bullying is rare but that adults deal with it if it happens. This helps pupils to feel safe.

“Staff have high expectations for all pupils, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). Parents of pupils with SEND appreciate the expertise of adults at school and the level of support they provide.

“Children get off to a flying start in reception, sharing in an exciting curriculum within a safe, stimulating environment. 

“Skilled staff encourage children to become independent and resilient learners. Adults join in with children’s imaginative play and encourage them to extend the range of words that they know and understand.

“Throughout the school, pupils continue to take pleasure in learning and take part in wider school activities such as musical instrument tuition. They become very skilled at using electronic devices to create, organise, edit and store their work.”
