Described by one of our Mumblers as “a hidden gem” – Bishopton Primary School has retained its “good” rating from Ofsted.
The result comes after a short inspection on 5th December 2017 and echoes the rating of the school’s last Ofsted inspection in January 2013.
A report by inspector Matt Meckin stated that the school’s inspirational leadership underpins its continued success.
It describes the school in glowing terms, such as:
“Pupils make good progress across the school because teachers’ subject knowledge is good, and they give clear explanations. Outcomes by the end of key stage 2 have been particularly positive. For example, in mathematics, pupils’ progress has been in the top 20% of all schools nationally over the last three years.”

Commenting on the report Lester Hunt the school’s headteacher said:
“We were delighted that our visit by Ofted confirmed that we continue to be a good school.
The outstanding qualities of our pupils came to the fore with behaviour and attitudes being seen as a strength. They were judged to be polite, articulate and curious about their learning, appreciating the good teaching that they receive.
It was also particularly pleasing that parents were unanimous in their positive view of the school.
We were particularly proud of judgements around high quality care, guidance and purpose provided by the leadership of the school, and relationships between staff and pupils providing a strong foundation for pupils’ happiness and progress.”
“The team were pleased with the progress made from our previous Ofsted, and we will continue to take the school forward, ensuring a high quality learning environment and education for all of our pupils.”
