Tiger Celebrates Good Ofsted Rating
Children and staff at Tiger Primary School are roaring with pride after being rated as good in all areas by Ofsted.
The school, in Boughton Lane, Loose, is today delighted to announce the outcome of an inspection carried out on January 13th and 14th.
The two-day visit was Ofsted’s first review in Tiger’s new building, which opened last year shortly after Charlotte Scott was appointed as Principal.
Mrs Scott said: “To be rated as good in all areas is a fantastic achievement, especially as the school was previously judged as requires improvement.
“We are very pleased that Ofsted has recognised the progress we have made, particularly in the last 12 months.”
In the report, inspectors praised the level of achievement across the school, the quality of teaching and learning, and the progress children have made in all areas of learning.
They spoke highly of the teachers’ strong subject knowledge and the school’s attainment, which they recognised as above the national average.
The report added, “children are given an excellent start to school and make rapid progress, including pupils who are eligible for Pupil Premium funding.”
The inspectors applauded Mrs Scott for her determination to ensure the pupils’ needs come first, and commended the staff for their “hunger and sense of urgency to improve the school continually.”
They also shared comments from the children’s families, including one parent who said, every morning their son “jumps up, puts his uniform on and goes to school beaming and bursting with happiness.”
Tiger Primary School, which is run by Future Schools Trust, became Maidstone’s first new primary school in 25 years when it opened in September 2012, within its sister site, New Line Learning Academy.
It was also the first school in Kent to be launched under the government’s free school initiative.
