A jubilant primary academy in Wood Green is celebrating having earned the highest possible Ofsted rating to be confirmed 'outstanding' in every area of school life.

When Nightingale Primary in Bounds Green Road became Trinity Primary Academy in 2012 it was rated as a failing school. In June 2014 it had been upgraded to 'requires improvement.'

Ofsted's latest visit in June 2016 confirms that the 440 pupil primary school for children aged three years to eleven has overtaken their 'good' rating to go direct to be judged 'outstanding.'

Their report, just published, highlights...

  • outstanding teaching and learning;
  • the highest possible accolade for the children's personal development, behaviour, welfare and high educational standards;
  • outstanding leadership that has led to rapid improvement in teaching and pupil achievement;
  • teachers very high expectations of pupils' behaviour and progress;
  • pupils are very polite and respect the differing needs and beliefs of others.

The children are also highly praised for being very confident and enthusiastic about learning. They feel exceptionally safe in school and the whole school community agrees with Ofsted that their behaviour is exemplary.

David Worrall, Executive Principal, said: "We are delighted that Ofsted judged Trinity to be outstanding in every area. The work of everyone involved has been transformational and our community now has a school it deserves and can be proud of."

Principal, David Atter, emphasised the key role of the pupils in achieving Ofsted's top rating. He added: "Our children deserve the highest praise for their fantastic attitudes to school life and the ways they work so closely and willingly together to support one another's learning. Their behaviour and manners are first class and they have a terrific pride in their school."
