Woodbridge Junior School in Alfreton has maintained its ‘good’ Ofsted rating following an inspection earlier this summer.

A report published by the inspectorate on Thursday (September 8) shows that the Grange Street school is considered to be ‘good’ in all areas, including the quality of education and leadership and management.

The report, based on an inspection in June, praises the school for improving attendance, ensuring that reading is a priority and well taught, and for being inclusive.

It also states: “Woodbridge is a caring school. Staff know pupils well. Leaders are ambitious for all pupils. They are determined that every pupil will succeed. They make sure any barriers to learning are overcome. As a consequence, pupils achieve well.

“Pupils are happy and feel safe. Bullying is not tolerated. Pupils are confident that adults will deal with any incidents that might occur. Pupils understand the school’s behaviour policy. They support one another and take responsibility for their own behaviour.”

Woodbridge Junior School maintains its ‘good’ Ofsted rating, which was awarded following an inspection in July 2016.
