A school in Launceston is celebrating following their first ever Ofsted inspection which found them to be ‘Good’ across all areas.

After first opening its doors in 2021, Launceston Primary School is now proudly celebrating Ofsted’s glowing report which highlighted its “broad and ambitious curriculum”, the “polite, well-mannered, and considerate” behaviour of pupils and the “successful learning environment” for children.

The inspectors praised the school’s “sharp focus on establishing a new school ethos and curriculum” which has meant “pupils are rightly proud of their school” and “enjoy their learning environment and maintain high levels of focus.”

The report found the school makes sure “pupils develop their knowledge securely to be prepared for future learning” through sequenced and targeted learning, alongside staff who “feel well supported to teach the curriculum” and “value the training they receive to develop their subject knowledge.”

Ofsted also said that thanks to how the “school, trust and governors are ambitious for all pupils at this school to do well”, pupils “are happy, safe and well cared for”.

Kate Eyre, principal at Launceston Primary School, said: “We are so proud that Ofsted has recognised the continued hard work and commitment of our whole school community with this incredibly positive first Ofsted report.

“The inspectors noted how our ambition, high-quality teaching, and positive and supportive culture is helping our pupils to develop a love of learning and prepare for the next stage of their education.

“I feel incredibly lucky to be leading this exceptional school with a group of such dedicated colleagues from across our School and Trust, and of course the enthusiastic children we get to teach every day.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our staff, pupils, parents, carers and supportive community who have made our school such a success, and I look forward to working closely with everyone to continue building on Launceston Primary’s strong foundations of excellence.”
