A primary school has been praised for its high standards of teaching and pupil behaviour.

Buckhurst Hill Community Primary school has retained its ‘good’ rating, while having some ‘outstanding’ aspects.

The school in Lower Queen’s Road was visited by Ofsted inspectors on January 23.

Lead inspector Tusharkana Chakraborti noted that pupils were courteous and showed respect for others.

The report said:  “Standards at the end of Year 6 are above national averages and significantly above in mathematics.

“Teaching is good overall with some that is outstanding. Pupils’ interest in their learning and their general levels of motivation is high.”

Pupil behaviour was judged to be outstanding and relationships between staff and pupils were said to be excellent.

The school has a higher than average intake of 360 pupils and is currently lead by acting headteacher Sally Elliot.

Inspectors revealed that the school was not classed as outstanding as higher achievers were not yet catered for during every work plan and better marking schemes are needed to give pupils clear guidance on improvements.

Well done to the school. However maybe some of the parents could learn from their children who were described as "courteous" and" showing respect."
Just try getting in or out of the road leading to the school during the school run and you will not find much courtesy or respect from the parent who will happily mow you down or block your way and then swear at you! If you live down there you pray and hope that you do not require an ambulance or the emergency service when they are getting their little progeny to and from school as no chance. The school just does not care about the residents and has made no attempts to sort out the chaos they have to live with twice a day.
