A Shropshire primary school no longer “requires improvement” after a successful Ofsted report.

Welshampton Primary school was praised as a “small and nurturing school” with a staff who “care deeply about the pupils they teach, and quickly build good relationships with pupils and their families.”

The school, which was previously rated in 2021 as “requiring improvement”, is now being rated as 'good' by Ofsted with inspectors praising the work of staff.

In their report, inspectors said: “The school is led by a highly passionate and committed team of leaders.

“They are mindful of staff workload and do all they can to support them. Together with the governing body, they check what is working well. They use this information to create effective plans to improve the school.


The inspectors also praised the ethos at the school and said: “The school's core value of 'growing together in strength, love and wisdom, we shine' is at the heart of its decisions.

“The ambitious curriculum captures pupils' interests and inspires them to want to learn more. The school thinks carefully about the visits pupils experience to bring the curriculum to life. Pupils' work in books is of a high standard and reflects the school's expectations.”

“Pupils are proud to come to this school and they behave well. They are attentive in lessons and take care of one another. They enjoy school, feel safe, and attend regularly. As a result, pupils thrive at this school.”

They also praised changes made by the school to its curriculum and said: “Since strengthening the foundation curriculum, the school has ensured that all pupils follow an ambitious curriculum in all subjects.

“This includes pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND).”
