A Uttoxeter middle school has maintained its Ofsted ‘good’ grade and been praised for providing a good quality of education that meets pupils’ needs.

Inspectors found that pupils at Oldfields Hall Middle School, on Stone Road, are happy and eager to learn and that the school looks after them very well.

Leaders have designed an ambitious and broad curriculum, according to the newly published report.

Leaders also have high expectations for all pupils including those with special educational needs and disabilities and those who are disadvantaged.

The inspection report notes that leaders have established a strong culture of safeguarding and pupils know how to keep themselves safe including when online.

Inspectors also found that the school provides excellent pastoral care and is very friendly and welcoming.

Parents and carers are overwhelmingly supportive of the school. Staff are very proud of the school and enjoy working there.

Carl Gliddon, Headteacher, Oldfields Hall Middle School, said: “Our priority is to ensure that pupils feel safe and happy and that they are well taught and eager to learn. We are delighted with this Ofsted report that is a tribute to the attitude and efforts of our children and staff.”

Sarah Clark, Chief Executive Officer, Uttoxeter Learning Trust, added: “It is fantastic to see such a glowing report and the achievements of Oldfields Hall Middle School children and staff recognised so positively by Ofsted.”
