We are immensely proud to share our most recent Ofsted report with you, where we have been judged to be “Good” across all categories.-
We are pleased that throughout the school, behaviour is effectively managed, resulting in good relationships and pupils sustain good concentration and positive attitudes to learning in classes.
Pupils in all year groups show consistently positive attitudes to learning and this is having an increasingly positive impact on their academic progress, which is consistently good.
Seely was recognised for:
- Plans for improvement being effective and well thought out
- Staff training and development are of good quality and result in the quality of teaching and the use of assessment being effective
- A key reason for the higher standards that are evident throughout the school is the close tracking of pupils’ progress by leaders and teachers. Underachievement is identified at an early stage
- The curriculums for mathematics and reading are both strong. National assessment results last year indicated that pupils made particularly strong progress in mathematics
- Children are taught fundamental British values, particularly those of tolerance and respect for ways of life that are different from their own. The school’s curriculum and ethos are strongly committed to promoting equality of opportunity and all pupils are valued and treated equally.
- In Early Year’s provision, a rising proportion of children this year are also on track to exceed the level of development expected by the end of Reception.
We pay tribute to our entire team and our supportive school community for sharing our vision and creating a school with a full, rich and varied curriculum. We are proud to have raised academic standards whilst holding true to our core vision. We are thrilled that our inclusive ethos shines through our report and highlights our commitment to meeting the needs of all our Seely children.

OFSTED have a site that is dedicated to you so that you can share your views about the school.
Parent View replaces the Parental Questionnaire used before inspections. Parents of children in school must register with Ofsted first before using the site. Parent View asks for your opinion on 12 aspects of your child’s school.
By sharing your views, you will be helping our school to improve. You will also be able to see what other parents have said about our school.
Ofsted do make it clear that the preferred method for dealing with a concern is to talk to the school first.
Thank you for taking the time to give your views to Seely Primary & Nursery School.
