" This school continues to be good."

“Good teaching in Mendip Green Primary School inspires pupils to work hard and achieve well.“

“…...the most able pupils achieve well because teachers know them well and provide them with the challenge they need”

“Pupils in your hearing impaired resource base and in your ‘nurture provision’ make good and often exceptional progress from their different starting points.”

“Pupils are successfully developing the knowledge, understanding and skills that underpin success in writing. The work of the most able pupils is characterised by fluent, sophisticated sentence structure and creative flair.“

“The greater emphasis on developing pupils’ mathematical reasoning and problem solving in mathematics is leading to improved standards for all.”

 “Behind your gentle approach lies a steely determination to ensure that every pupil has a voice in this inclusive school. Parents recognise the lengths to which staff go to provide a welcoming school where children are well cared for and are motivated to be curious. ‘A wonderful caring and nurturing school which brings out the best in every individual child’ was typical of the many positive comments inspectors received from parents. Pupils say they enjoy school and find learning to be ‘fun’ and ‘interesting’.”

“Pupils are well prepared to face a wide range of situations they may encounter in the future, by having faith in themselves and the courage to ‘not let anyone take their choices away’. You place great emphasis on pupils understanding the choices they have. The school’s personal, social, health and economic education prepares pupils well so that they are able to make a valuable contribution to society. For example, inspectors observed pupils eloquently debating the pros and cons of age restrictions on internet games. Pupils demonstrated great respect for one another’s views in this contentious debate.”

“The curriculum the pupils experience is broad and purposeful. Pupils are empowered to achieve. Where pupils have particular talents in, for example, computing or gymnastics, you ensure these pupils have every opportunity to excel.”

The school is a happy and exciting place to be.”
