Copenhagen Primary School goes from Ofsted horror show to “good” across the board

Copenhagen Primary School has been rated “good” across the board by Ofsted four years after it was placed in special measures.
During their April visit to the Treaty Street school, inspectors stressed that “pupils feel very safe” and lauded the “strong programme of curriculum enrichment”.
This is quite the turn around in fortunes since 2013, when the school was rated “inadequate” in every category and condemned for poor standards and too many incidents of bullying.
In March 2015, the school fared better with “good” scores in each category apart from the achievement of pupils, which was rated as “requires improvement”.
Acting headteacher Amardeep Panesar, who was praised for her “strong leadership in the report”, said: “The school has been transformed to an oasis of calm where children feel happy and safe, where they are stretched and challenged to reach the highest standards and where families work with staff to achieve outstanding results.
“This great report will really put Copenhagen on the map and spur us on to even greater achievements.”
Copenhagen follows in the footsteps of Thornhill Primary School, which bumped its Ofsted rating up from “requires improvement” two years ago, to “good” across the board earlier this month.
