Hyde Church of England Primary School


Our latest OfSTED inspection was in July 2018. The school was judged to be GOOD.

The inspector noted that since the last inspection, in December 2013, the good quality of education in the school had been maintained and what is best for pupils had been put at the heart of all decisions reached.

  • Pupils are enthusiastic about the school. They enjoy school and say that learning is ‘fun and the teachers are great’. When I asked a group of pupils what they would do to improve the school, they answered, ‘Nothing, it’s perfect already.’
  • Pupils behave extremely well in lessons and around the school. They are polite and welcoming and treat each other and adults with friendly respect.
  • Parents are extremely happy with the school. The vast majority say that they would recommend it to another parent. They particularly value the school’s inclusive nature. One parent, reflecting the views of many, commented that, ‘Our children are lucky to go to this wonderful, caring, nurturing school. It really is so precious.’
  • Pupils feel safe at school and parents are highly supportive of how the school cares for and nurtures their children.
  • Pupils are keen to do well … and enjoy the full range of activities available, especially the music and drama productions.
  • The curriculum has been revamped to ensure that it is relevant to pupils with aspects of mathematics, design technology and science taught outside in the Forest to fully utilise this resource.
  • Pupils have many opportunities to participate in physical activity. You have recently been awarded the ‘Sports Mark’ gold award in recognition of this. You have been creative in your use of the school’s sports funding using it to support active learning and greater participation outdoors in your Forest School.
