The report highlighted that the 37-pupil school provides outstanding pastoral care for its pupils and the report describes it as a good school. It also stated that parents and carers of the school hold it in high esteem, and it is highly regarded in the local community.

Also all of the staff know the pupils exceptionally well as individuals, and the remarkable nurture that they provide enables pupils to feel extremely safe and well cared for.

Main strengths highlighted were: the overall effectiveness of the school is very good; the school’s ability for continued improvement is very good; quality of pupils learning in lessons is good as they are keen to do well; pupils’ achievement and the extent to which they enjoy their learning is good; the extent to which pupils feel safe is outstanding; very good quality of teaching; outstanding effectiveness of care, guidance and support for pupils; the school’s effectiveness of leadership and management in embedding ambition and driving improvement is very good; the effectiveness of the school’s engagement with parent and carers is outstanding; very good overall effectiveness of the Early Years Foundation Stage.

The results from a survey undertaken by parents and carers suggest that they are overwhelmingly supportive of the school and they are truly pleased with the school.

The government inspectors also said: “Pupils make good progress with their work and they feel really safe when they are at school. The schools learning environment is welcoming and interesting, both inside and out.

“Most children, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities make good progress across the different areas of learning. The headteacher, other adults and the governing body work well together and want the school to be as good as possible.”

Headteacher Mrs Chris Cook said: “I am delighted with the Ofsted report, it is great news. All the team at Wroot Travis Primary School have worked hard to provide the very best education we can for the pupils.

“We have a good relationship with parents and the governing body as we all want the school to be as good as possible, and for the pupils to continuously make progress. I am very proud of what we have achieved.”
