Pupils and staff at Hanwell Fields Community School are celebrating after being judged ‘Good’ in their latest Ofsted inspection.

Inspectors visited the Banbury primary school in Rotary Way for two days last month, and found strong evidence the academy is improving rapidly.

They added they were particularly impressed with the quality of teaching and said that rapid improvements have led to ‘higher achievement for pupils’ - especially in writing.

Harry Wall, headteacher, said: “The whole school community is thrilled with this report which recognises all the fantastic work underway at Hanwell Fields. I am particularly pleased that inspectors noticed how ambitious we all are for the academy and this report will spur us on to continue to work hard and reach even greater heights.”

In Early Years Provision, the report said children ‘get off to a good start in the early years because teaching is rightly focused on securing essential skills’. Pupils are described as ‘caring and encourage each other to do their best’.

It added staff morale is described as ‘high’ and that they are ‘proud to work at the academy’.
