A HAMPSHIRE primary school has been praised for its polite pupils, caring teachers and ambitious curriculum in its latest Ofsted inspection. 

Following its one-day inspection in January, Broughton Primary School has been assessed as ‘good’. 

The school, under the leadership of executive headteacher Lucy Macey, has been continuing to build the strength and depth of its provision. 

Mrs Macey said: “We are delighted that the feedback we received was so positive and are pleased that we can now continue to drive improvements in the school.

"I couldn't be prouder of my staff as, despite any challenge thrown at them, they continue to provide excellent quality of education for every child that walks through our doors here at Broughton.” 

The full report is now available on the Ofsted reports website.

The report supports the school’s view that safety is always the number one priority.

The report said: “From the moment pupils start school, they learn the school’s four values which encompass resilience, respect, courage and responsibility.

“Leaders ensure that pupils develop as future citizens through understanding the importance of respect, rights and responsibility.

“Pupils behave well in lessons and try their best. Pupils are polite and well-mannered towards adults and their peers. They concentrate in lessons and have positive attitudes to learning.
