Three Enfield primary schools have received improved ratings from the government inspector within the last fortnight.

According to Ofsted, De Bohun, Brimsdown and Prince of Wales primary schools have done well enough to increase their official rankings from “requires improvement” to “good”, the second highest rating possible.

For De Bohun, based in Green Road, Southgate, it marks a notable transformation. In October 2012, the school failed its inspection and was placed in the lowest possible category of Special Measures.

However, when Ofsted inspected on July 7 this year, it found the school had made significant improvements.

The report, published on September 9, said: “The school is improving rapidly. The single-minded determination of the head teacher and deputy head teacher have brought about improvements in the quality of teaching since the last inspection. Consequently, pupils’ achievement has risen throughout the school.

“The school’s work to keep pupils safe is effective. Pupils are well cared for and thrive as a result of the support and guidance that staff provide.

“Pupils make good progress because they practise key skills very regularly. Pupils write particularly well because teachers provide a range of interesting tasks that help them develop their skills quickly.”

Since 2012 De Bohun has also improved its facilities, including a new computer suite, more classrooms and extensive redecoration.

Deputy head teacher Dominic Smart said: “The whole school community have worked exceptionally hard to secure this transformation. Staff, parents and the children all played a vital role.

“We now aim to be the school of choice for our local community and hope everyone joins us on the next stage of our journey – getting to outstanding.”

Brimsdown Primary School was praised for its “outstanding leadership” and the “quality of teaching”.

The Ofsted report published on September 8 said: “Governors are highly ambitious for the school. Their knowledge, expertise and determination lead them to support and challenge school leaders exceptionally well.

“Children make rapid progress in the early years so that they are well prepared socially and academically for their learning in Year 1.

“Parents express very high levels of satisfaction with the school’s work. Those who have been associated with the school for some time are highly complementary about the significant improvements to their children’s experience of school.”

Head teacher Matthew Kleiner-Mann said the improvement across all three schools showed how teachers are valued in Enfield.

He said: "The school has not had such a good report in a long time. It shows off the hard work by everyone - teachers, support staff and pupils alike.

"It's a very good report, and a big thing for the school."

Prince of Wales Primary School, in Salisbury Road, Enfield, was inspected on July 6 with the report published on September 1.

It was found to be good in all categories, with the report saying: “The head teacher knows his school and the community well. Since the previous inspection, he has been unstinting in his commitment to drive improvement across all areas.”
