Harris Primary Academy Benson is judged to be "Good" in its first Ofsted inspection

Pupils and staff celebrate strong report for school that is “improving swiftly in all aspects of its work including teaching and pupils’ achievement”

”The Executive Principal and senior leaders provide a clear direction for improvement and know what to do to make the academy outstanding”

”Pupils’ achievement is increasing rapidly”

”Pupils from differing backgrounds play together harmoniously and are pleased to receive ‘shining star’ awards for best behaviour”

As they end their second year as an academy, staff and pupils at Harris Primary Academy Benson are celebrating receiving their first Ofsted report.

The academy opened in September 2013 replacing Benson Primary School which was judged Inadequate by Ofsted.

In their report, inspectors praised all aspects of the academy and, in particular, the progress that has been made since it opened:

  • “Pupils achieve well because attainment and the rate of progress are rising rapidly”;
  • “Pupils are polite and friendly and are keen to learn. They are proud of their academy and wear the new academy uniform with pride”;
  • “Teaching has a good impact on learning because literacy, reading and mathematics are taught well”;
  • “Pupils make good progress across the academy and the leaders are working successfully to close any remaining gaps in attainment”;
  •  “Pupils for whom English is an additional language do exceptionally well. They benefit from work that is tailor-made for their particular needs. They gain confidence in speaking English because of the positive support they receive from members of staff and other pupils”;

Sir Dan Moynihan, Chief Executive of the Harris Federation, said:

“This report demonstrates the excellent progress that the academy has made in its first two years and sets out its direction of travel for the future.  Pupils and staff can begin their summer holiday rightly proud of what they have achieved and confident about their future”.

Kate Magliocco, Executive Principal of the academy said:

“Everyone at the academy is buoyed by this judgement and report which give an excellent reflection of where we are now and where we intend to be in the future.  Alongside the important detail of the progress and improvement that is underway, it is equally gratifying that inspectors noted how proud our pupils are of their academy. Having happy children is so important in a primary school and we are delighted that children of all abilities and backgrounds feel at home in our academy”.
