Larkrise Primary School in East Oxford has been rated good following an inspection by Ofsted.
The school had been rated inadequate by Ofsted in 2018, after which it joined River Learning Trust. Last month‚Äôs inspection was its first since joining RLT.
Ofsted inspectors found Larkrise to be good in all areas, describing the school as a ‚Äúwelcoming and inclusive community where pupils are cared for and nurtured‚ÄĚ.
They added: ‚ÄúLeaders have successfully established a respectful and calm community where pupils can focus on their learning.¬†
‚ÄúPupils demonstrate the school values of creativity, kindness and adventure through the way they treat others and approach their learning.
‚ÄúLeaders, supported by the multi-academy trust (MAT), are highly ambitious for this school and its pupils.
‚ÄúThey have made recent improvements to all areas of the school and continue to seek ways to develop further.‚ÄĚ
Larkrise headteacher Jon Gray said: ‚ÄúThe staff team have been incredible and held on tight through the rapid improvement journey, including during the choppy waters of the pandemic. We feel so fortunate to be able to lead such an incredible team.
‚ÄúThey are truly amazing and have the well deserved title of the ‚ÄėLarkrise Family‚Äô. Nothing could be achieved without their skilled dedication to the children in our care.‚ÄĚ
RLT chief executive, Paul James, said: ‚ÄúThe school has improved significantly over the past few years.
‚ÄúEverybody involved with the school should be proud of what has been achieved and what the school does for its pupils and community on a daily basis‚ÄĚ.
