An East Dulwich school has been given an ‘outstanding’ rating after its first ever inspection by Ofsted.
Harris Primary Academy East Dulwich in Lordship Lane was opened in 2014.
In their report, published on June 6, the government inspectors commented that the school had established itself thanks to “strong leadership”, and said pupils were “polite and courteous”, with “impeccable” behaviour.
Inspectors said: “Leaders have designed an exciting curriculum that successfully meets the needs and interests of the pupils. They ensure pupils get rich experiences that draw on the local community and include a wider range of visits. The early-years provision is outstanding. It is extremely well led. Staff ensure that children have the best start to their education by setting high challenges. As a result, children make rapid progress from their starting points.”
School principal Jo Conduit said: “I am so grateful to the staff, children, parents, governors and the Harris Federation who have all played their part in making our academy ‘outstanding’.
“We are particularly pleased to have achieved this in our first ever Ofsted and we look forward to maintaining these excellent standards as the academy grows to full capacity in the next few years.”
