Outstanding becomes a habit for Wisbech Federation

We have exhausted the thesaurus and are going to have to ask year six to come up with new words for outstanding and exceptional. Karen Crawley and her leadership team at the Federation of Nene and Ramnoth Schools in Wisbech got their second outstanding judgement in six months this week. Ofsted has judged the school as ‘Good’ overall with Outstanding leadership, behaviour and safety and early years provision. This transformational success has been achieved in less than two years since the school was judged to be requiring improvement and less than six months after Little Owls Daycare was also judged outstanding.

OfSTED inspectors said:

  • The Executive Principal, senior leadership team and governing body provide excellent leadership for this rapidly improving school. They work together exceptionally well as a team and are very passionate that every child should be able to achieve his or her best

  • Leaders, managers and governors are having an excellent impact on teaching and pupils’ achievement 

  • Teaching is excellent because members of staff work extremely closely together to ensure that children are given tasks that are just right for their next stage of learning.

  • Pupils’ behaviour is exemplary

  • Pupils feel exceptionally safe at school

  • Governance is highly effective and governors are very knowledgeable about the school

Well done, we are tremendously proud of all of you. This is the 8th outstanding leadership judgement in little more than a year for the Elliot Foundation which equates to 72% of all of our OFSTED inspections since launch.
