Trinity St Mary's School, in South Woodham Ferrers, praised for work of stand in headteacher


A SCHOOL in South Woodham Ferrers has received glowing praise from Ofsted after it was rated ‘good’ in its latest inspection.

Trinity St Mary’s School, in Trinity Square, South Woodham Ferrers, was inspected last month by Ofsted.

Inspector, Cindy Impey, found the school to be in a very good position and praised the work of acting head teacher Janet Hoy.

She said: “The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the previous inspection. Although the school has recently experienced a difficult period in leadership, Miss Hoy has stepped up to the role of acting head teacher while also continuing as a class teacher.”

The report went on to praise the attention that has been given to the pupils’ writing skills at the school, but urged the staff to focus further on the children’s mathematics.

Inspector, Cindy Impey added: “Since the previous inspection there has been a strong focus on developing pupils’ writing skills. Pupils’ writing is now celebrated widely around the school, is beautifully presented and is of good quality.

“Leaders and those responsible for governance should ensure that they continue to improve and embed pupils’ deeper thinking skills in the teaching of mathematics.”
