Headteacher pays tribute to school community after ‘good’ Ofsted rating

A Bury St Edmunds primary school is celebrating after Ofsted inspectors rated them as “good” with outstanding features.

Abbots Green Academy were praised for the quality of their education, behaviour and attitudes and leadership and management following the two-day inspection last month.

The report went even further in giving the highest possible mark to the personal development and early years provision categories.

Headteacher Ang Morrison said she was “thrilled” and incredibly proud of the staff, students and school community.

She said: “To have obtained the recognition that our school is ‘outstanding’ in many ways is an incredible achievement and reflection of our vision and values that we remain committed to every day, for every pupil. It is important to note that the incredible team effort that led to our ‘wow’ value being quoted for certain aspects of the school, is one that continues to shine from every member of staff and pupil of our school. 

“It is a genuine privilege to work alongside staff that are relentless in adopting our vision for every individual in partnership with our incredibly supportive families.”

The Ofsted report praised the well-considered curriculum, helping early years pupils get off to an “impressive start”, and said all pupils felt happy and safe at the school.

It added: “The ‘rainbow values’ encapsulate all that is great about the pupils at Abbots Green Academy.

“Pupils are responsible in how they approach learning, reading regularly to win the sought-after ‘reading cup’ as well as striving to take on leadership roles within their school community.”
