Enfield Primary Academy of New Waltham, in Grimsby, part of the Enquire Learning Trust (ELT), has been awarded a further judgment of ‘Good’ following a short inspection by Ofsted inspectors. 

The inspection was the first to be carried out since the school was judged to be ‘Good’ in May 2014 prior to becoming an academy.

The inspection report noted that “the leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection” and that leadership has continued “a culture of high expectations for pupil achievement”. 

Ofsted commented on the significant changes at the school since the last inspection in relation to staff – nearly all of who are new, which has improved its effectiveness. The inspector also said that leaders have an accurate view of the school’s strengths and know what needs to improve.

Safeguarding is effective and there is a ‘strong culture’ of safeguarding pupils at Enfield and that the school is working effectively with external agencies to ensure that everything is being done to safeguard children and minimise risk.

Mrs Amanda Scott, Principal, said: “I am very pleased with the outcome of this inspection because it recognises the changes and progress we have made since academisation.  Ofsted also noted that parents are very positive about the school too and were full of praise for the efforts leaders and staff put into ensuring that their children’s needs are met.”

“Our teachers can now work collaboratively with teachers from other ELT schools,” she continued. “This allows them to share best practice and our pupils are more confident with plenty of opportunities to ask questions both of themselves and of teachers, to deepen their understanding.”
