Highgate Primary School praised for 'continuing improvement' in latest Ofsted report
A primary school in Highgate has been praised for its “continuing improvement” in its latest Ofsted report.
Highgate Primary, in Storey Road, is celebrating the results of the latest inspection, which said quality of teaching at the school is “mostly good or better”.
It added that the teaching is “monitored effectively and ensures pupils make good progress”.
The inspectors found “a trend of continuing improvement" in pupils’ achievement and standards over the past three years.
There was approval of the school’s British Sign Language lessons for all pupils, which involves a partnership with Blanche Nevile School for deaf children in nearby Muswell Hill.
Inspectors observed one parent or carer was "amazed" to watch her child signing to a deaf friend in the playground.
The report also said relationships across the school were good, and pupils are polite and courteous to adults, and behave well in lessons and in the playground.
The school’s headteacher, William Dean, said: “We’re really pleased with our latest report.
“Highgate Primary is a happy and successful school where we have great enthusiasm for fun and learning from pupils and our highly committed and experienced staff.”
