Ofsted and Performance Data

Bulwell St Mary’s C of E Primary School has been praised for its ‘happy pupils’.


Following the short inspection of Bulwell St Mary’s C of E Primary School on 19th March 2019 Ofsted have determined that the leadership team has maintained a good quality of education since the last inspection.


In particular, the inspector highlighted:

  • Pupils are motivated learners; where pupils require additional support, the school has ensured that staff are in place to meet their needs
  • Staff are enthusiastic and highly committed. The school has identified the key priorities for improvement and has ensured that staff have a higher expectation of what pupils can achieve in lessons and over time.
  • Governors are ambitious for the school. They have a good understanding of what the school does well and what it needs to do to be even better.
  • In key stage 2, pupils write with increasing regularity and at length. Books show that skills in spelling, punctuation and grammar are taught regularly and systematically to give structure to writing and to make it more effective.
  • In mathematics, the school has refined teaching to increase fluency in arithmetic and to deepen and broaden pupils’ knowledge and understanding of mathematical processes to solve problems of increasing complexity.


We are very proud of the fact that we have maintained the ‘good’ judgement.  Parents, carers and children should be proud that the school they send their children to is recognised by Ofsted as continuing to be a ‘good’ school and our school continues to move forward in the right direction.
