All our staff are highly committed, we work hard to provide excellence in all that we do. Ultimately, we want our school to be the best it can be for our pupils, not for an inspectorate – but it is, of course, lovely to see our provision externally recognised through these reports.

We have been most recently inspected in March 2024 (Section 8 inspection), and previously in February 2019 (Full, Graded Inspection). Both of these inspections went very well indeed, and the reports can be found below.

This report (see above) offers a selection of insights which celebrate the many strengths of our school. Section 8 inspections do not offer individual grades for areas, but we were told that, had this inspection been a graded one, the inspectors would have been looking at the grade descriptors for Outstanding in Leadership and Management and Personal Development. Some particular aspects that were highlighted are below:

  • “From the minute pupils walk into Leeming RAF Community Primary School they are nurtured and supported in ways important and particular to them.”

  • “Everyone works together towards the school’s vision of excellence in learning & excellence in character.”

  • “Pupils are courteous towards each other and adults alike.”

  • “Personal development is a key strength of the school. Pupils have numerous opportunities to develop their Respect skills . They are well informed and have a mature understanding.”

  • “Everyone - pupils, staff and parents - has a tangible pride in a school that is truly at the heart of its community."

This report (see above) really captures what makes Leeming special: “strong and positive relationships are the hallmark of this school” and “pastoral care is paramount to all”. This encompasses what we are 'all about' at Leeming.

The report goes on to say that:

  • Leaders are "uncompromising in their pursuit of excellence"
  • Governors are "highly skilled, enthusiastic and ambitious"
  • Children in the early years "make good progress" because of the "strong bonds that are formed with accomplished staff" 
  • Pupils are "friendly and welcoming", "behave well [and have] positive attitudes"
  • Children with Special Educational Needs make "excellent progress"
  • "Highly effective pastoral care provides thoughtful induction for those pupils new to the school and emotional support for pupils who are leaving."
  • Teachers "have high expectations for pupils' achievement"
  • Pupils "are making very good progress and developing their writing skills well"
  • The teaching of PE is "highly effective"
  • The school has a "very settled atmosphere" and children are "thoughtfully supported" during times of parental deployment and separation
  • "Strong and positive relationships with parents are formed quickly by welcoming staff."

The report talks about our children as being “polite and well mannered” and also notes that they show “much empathy” – what a great set of attributes and values. The children are the real stars of the show, and the centre of all we do.
