A Leytonstone school has been praised by inspectors after it received a “Good” rating from Ofsted.

Buxton School was applauded by the education watchdog in a report published this week, which has seen it retain the “Good” rating it received in 2013.

Quality of teaching at the school was described as “effective”, while the Special Education Needs (SEN) department was singled out as particularly strong.

They found behaviour at the school to be good, with pupils making good progress in a “warm and welcoming” environment.

Inspectors found our curriculum to be “well planned, broad and balanced”, with enrichment activities that support pupils’ personal development.

The school, which caters for children aged three to 16, had a curriculum that was “well planned, broad and balanced”, according to inspectors.

The report reads: “Pupils were keen to tell inspectors about the community spirit within the school that celebrates diversity and encourages respect and tolerance for all.

“Positive relationships between staff and pupils further support this aspect of pupils’ welfare.”

Head teacher, Kath Wheeler said: “We are very pleased with the result of this inspection. We have once again been judged Good in all categories.

“This report confirms that right across this school we strive for and reach very high standards of education.

“This endorsement from Ofsted comes at the perfect time as we complete the move into our brand-new state-of-the-art school building.

“Our community now have what they deserve, a school that consistently reaches high standards with the outstanding facilities to match.”
