Positive Ofsted for Nunnykirk
9 September 2011
Nunnykirk has received a very positive report from Ofsted following the inspection in June 2011.
The inspector reported: “A strong, caring, positive and supportive ethos pervades the whole school. Pupils blossom due to the care, guidance and support the school provides which are of the highest quality. A strong commitment to the individual lies at the heart of Nunnykirk’s ethos and it gives priority to ensuring that all pupils have equal opportunities for success.”
“The school is well led and managed by the staff who are committed to raising achievement and to pupils’ continuous improvement.”
Head teacher Carol Hodgson said: “We are delighted the inspector recognised the great efforts we put into supporting all our pupils’ needs and to providing the opportunities for them to flourish and progress despite some of the disadvantages they face. We are particularly pleased that the report also reflects the continuous work and commitment of the staff here at Nunnykirk who strive to provide the best possible learning environment.”
Chair of Governors, John Trevelyan, added: “This report is very encouraging and reflects all the hard work put in by both pupils and staff. I was also pleased to hear the positive views of parents as their support for the school is very important as we continue to raise the quality of teaching and the care we provide to all our students.”
Dyslexia is a specific learning difficulty (SpLD), often inherited and is a lifelong condition. Dyslexia is much more than the traditional definition of ‘difficulty with words’ or ‘word blindness’.
Nunnykirk School is very happy to offer a taster day for any child with dyslexia whose parents are considering sending them to the school.
