Ofsted report delights

Headteacher, Paul Heeley of Amble Links First School and his staff are absolutely delighted with the outcome of their Ofsted inspection which has graded the school as ‘Good’. 

“The inspection report has highlighted the many strengths of our school which is testament to the hard work and dedication of all of our stakeholders since the last inspection nearly two and a half years ago”, said Mr. Heeley.

The report states, “Amble Links is a good school providing a happy and secure environment for its pupils.

“The new headteacher has a clear vision for the school, with a commitment to ensuring pupils get access to good quality learning. He is well supported by a strong team of staff and a leadership team …”

“Throughout the school, progress made by pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities is good. This is as a result of the good support provided by teaching assistants and effectively planned teaching.

“Pupils do well, in this caring and close community. They feel very safe, know about keeping healthy and have very positive attitudes to learning. Pupils are happy at school and attendance rates have improved and are now broadly average”.

The report goes on to state that the quality of teaching is good, engaging the pupils’ interest, with stimulating activities.
