Our Performance

OFSTED Monitoring Visit 22

OFSTED Report 2021

Department of Education Schools Performance Tables

On Tuesday 13th December 22, we received a monitoring inspection visit at Newtown Primary School.


A monitoring inspection is a one-day, interim visit from an HMI inspector to report on the progress made since the previous full inspection. A monitoring visit cannot change our Ofsted judgement, but it does highlight the progress that we have made as well as supporting our next steps.


It can be noted that Ofsted, Devon local authority and the ACE multi-academy trust have seen a great deal of progress in a short amount of time. This is something that we should all be very proud of.


The report’s main findings:

  • There have been steady improvements in the quality of education pupils receive, including in the early years.

  • Leaders monitor the curriculum, and school-wide teaching approaches are in place.

  • Since September 2022, leaders’ work to raise staff expectations of what pupils in all classes will know and understand is making a demonstrable difference.

  • Staff value the comprehensive training, support and coaching they are receiving, including when planning sequences of work.

  • Leaders’ work to ensure that staff show fidelity to the school’s agreed approach to teaching early reading is paying off.

  • Leaders’ and staff’s emphasis on pupils demonstrating positive learning behaviours in lessons is proving effective. Lessons are rarely interrupted.

  • Pupils feel safe in school.

  • Governors work closely with Devon local authority and the ACE multi-academy trust. They are using the actions from a range of external audits to hold leaders to account.

  • Staff understand and apply the school’s agreed safeguarding policies and procedures effectively.
