School Performance Review

As a result of the exceptional dedication and efforts of the Osborne staff over the last two years, I am pleased to report the headline from an independent school review.

Key Outcomes:

Osborne Primary School is an improving school: The school recently received a positive Ofsted inspection which acknowledged the progress the school leaders have made since the previous inspection. The few areas for improvement identified are the subject of an action plans that the leadership team are implementing effectively.

The school is taking effective action and is a low risk of not being good when next inspected.


It has been great to welcome back Miss Axford in 3AF, this term. She is thoroughly enjoying being back in the classroom and the children have been keen to engage with her too.

We have also been very pleased with how quickly Ms Lewis has settled into 2H as their TA.


After School Clubs and Y6/Y5 Working Breakfast

From Tuesday 4th May, Y5 and Y6 children (as they are one bubble) will be able to access a free breakfast plus access to online learning programmes in the hall with Mr Wall.  This is improving the learning and confidence of those children attending, plus giving them greater independence.

Mr Wall and I have met today to discuss what After School Club provision can be offered safely, under the current Covid restrictions. He will be informing parent/carers next week via group call and the school website, which can be accessed at:


School Gates, Parents and Covid Safe

As restrictions begin to ease, it is vital that we remain alert to protecting the school and local community.

Can we therefore ask, that parents do not stand by any school gate or on Osborne Road after delivering children to school?

Unfortunately, a few parents are lingering in these places and causing an obstruction to other children and parents; potentially increasing the risk of covid transmission.

We would also ask that parents observe and role model the 2 metre social distancing rule at all times.


Number Day

Number Day is a great way to make maths fun and bring about a positive, ‘can-do’ attitude towards it.

We are having a fun day of maths activities and we will be taking part in Dress up for Digits in support of the NSPCC.  Pupils are asked to wear an item of clothing with a number on it (football shirt, cap, netball shirt or even a onesie!).  Or get even more creative by dressing in a maths or numbers theme.

Please pay £1 for wearing non uniform – digit clothes and add in any additional monies to support the NSPCC.
