In September 2013 OFSTED rated Princefield First School as a ‘GOOD’ school stating…


  • Pupils get off to a good start in nursery and the Reception classes and become confident learners, particularly in speaking and listening, understanding instructions and using the language of mathematics.
  • Pupils make good progress and reach above expected attainment levels in reading and mathematics by the end of Year 4.
  • Standards in writing are improving quickly but are not quite as high as those in reading and mathematics.
  • Teaching is good. Well-planned lessons and the recent emphasis on holding individual ‘learning conversations’ with pupils are having a marked impact on the progress of all groups.
  • Disabled pupils and those with who have special educational needs make good progress as a result of carefully targeted support and challenge.
  • The well thought out learning opportunities, based upon exciting introductions to topics, contribute to pupils’ good attitudes and behaviour in and around school.
  • Good leadership by the headteacher, senior staff and governors, underpinned by accurate self-evaluation, a clear plan for improvement and accountability at all levels, are the cornerstones of the schools success.
  • The pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is good and enables pupils to develop into successful learners who care about themselves, others and their environment.
