Thames View Primary School remains a good school
Staff and parents at Thames View Primary School based in Rainham are celebrating the outcome of their January 2020 Ofsted inspection in which the school remained “Good”. Thames View Primary School joined The Howard Academy Trust in April 2017.
The Ofsted inspection found that, although standards have declined since the last inspection (July 2015), since September, senior leaders have made improvements across the school and are raising staff expectations of what pupils can achieve. Pupils, particularly those in key stage 2, relish the new challenges this presents. Their environmental work, such as reducing plastic use and writing to the Prime Minister with their recycling suggestions, demonstrates their desire to make their mark on the world.
Deanne Daburn (Head of School) commented that “I am extremely proud of our children along with what we, as a staff team, have achieved in a short period of time. We are committed and passionate about providing high quality education and enjoyment for learning. We continue to work in partnership with parents and the community so that pupils can achieve academic success and experience personal well-being within a safe and caring environment. I would like to thank everyone for their wholehearted support as we strive to exceed our goals and expectations.”
Owen McColgan (Chief Executive) of The Howard Academy Trust commented that “I am delighted with the Ofsted report which indicates that Thames View remains a good school. Thames View has been on and remains on a journey. Inspectors have identified that Thames View has a committed team of staff who are passionate about delivering high quality provision for pupils in a safe and happy learning environment. I am very proud of the excellent team we have in place supporting our children at Thames View”.
