Langford Village Academy receives Good Ofsted grading

Langford Village Academy has been rated Good in all areas in its latest Ofsted inspection.

The report, which followed a two-day inspection in April, highlighted the good attitude of children, stating that “established and clear routines mean that pupils behave well”.

Inspectors also noted how the school and trust had reviewed and improved the curriculum, and a focus on wellbeing, including lessons in mindfulness, which “contributes to a calm atmosphere that exists across the school”.

Principal Debbie Randall said: “I am pleased with our report and recognition of our successful journey to become a primary school. Langford Village Academy is a very warm and nurturing environment where children thrive and are happy, as recognised in our report.

“Our children behave well and have an excellent attitude to learning. I am very proud of them and would like to thank parents for their continued support.

Mrs Randall added: “I would like to thank my wonderful staff, who go the extra mile to ensure our children get the best education possible. Also, being part of the BEST family, too, has definitely contributed to our success due to the support we receive from the trust.”

BEST Chief Executive Officer Dr Alan Lee said: “I am delighted with this report. It clearly underscores the great improvements made at Langford Village Academy.
