Clipston Endowed VC Primary School

Ofsted - September 2016
“This school continues to be good. Pupils enjoy school and are enthusiastic, keen to learn and willing to share their ideas.

The teaching of phonics is very good. The most able pupils are fluent readers and read with expression. Parents of Reception children spoke positively about how well their children have settled into school. The school has a range of extra-curricular activities for pupils to participate in. Pupils get a good understanding of enterprise. Pupils are well prepared for life in modern Britain. The majority of parents were very positive about the school and would recommend the school to other parents.
