Ofsted Reports

As you know, Ofsted inspected our school on 20th September 2023 and I am delighted to attach the final report which states that Buriton School continues to be a good school. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the many parents who have been so supportive with their good wishes,  emails, and biscuits! They were all very much appreciated.


I am very pleased with the final report which reflects our wonderful school and would particularly like to draw your attention to the following statements within the report:


“Pupils value the sense of family at this school where everyone nurtures and supports one another. They appreciate the positive relationships with staff and the care that pupils have for each other. This helps them to feel safe and happy.”


 “The school has high expectations of pupils’ achievement from early years onwards. Staff  provide timely support when needed to enable pupils to keep up.”


 “During playtimes, pupils from Reception to Year 6 play kindly together. Older children show great care towards the younger children.”


 “The school has established a well-designed and ambitious curriculum that begins right from the start of the early years. In all subjects, the school has carefully identified the precise knowledge that pupils need to learn and in what order.”


“The school provides effective training so that teachers understand barriers to pupils’ learning. This helps staff to skilfully adapt their teaching to enable all pupils to access the full curriculum so they achieve well.”


“Pupils behave well in lessons. This is because teachers have established clear routines and expectations which are reinforced through positive praise. Pupils respond well to these high expectations from the start of early years onwards.”


“Staff are proud to work at this school. They feel well supported by leaders… Leaders, including those responsible for governance, have a clear and accurate understanding of the school’s strengths and priorities.”


We hope that you find the report useful and feel very proud that your child, with your support, has played a significant part in this school’s success.


We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all those of you who returned the questionnaire for the Ofsted inspector who was overwhelmed with positive responses and thank you for your continued support in all that the school does for your child.
