Tolleshunt D'Arcy St Nicholas Primary Academy celebrates its first inspection as an academy.

The Ofsted report, published April 24, confirms the school's good performance in meeting the expectations of the Ofsted framework across all areas of assessment.

The report commends St Nicholas Primary Academy's commitment to delivering a high standard of education, fostering positive behaviour and attitudes, promoting personal development, and demonstrating effective leadership and management under the direction of Head of School, Emma Reece and Lois Osborne, Executive Headteacher and Chief Executive Officer of Canonium Learning Trust. 

"We are thrilled with the positive Ofsted judgement received by Tolleshunt D'Arcy St Nicholas Primary Academy," said Lois Osborne, Executive Headteacher and CEO of Canonium Learning Trust. 

"This reflects the dedication and collaborative spirit of our school community in providing a quality education that meets the highest standards." 

The Ofsted inspector praised the school for its positive learning environment, supportive relationships between staff and pupils, and the implementation of an ambitious curriculum focused on academic achievement. 

"This good Ofsted judgment is a testament to the hard work and commitment of our staff, pupils, parents and whole school community" stated Emma Reece, Head of School at Tolleshunt D'Arcy St Nicholas Primary Academy. 

"We are dedicated to providing our pupils with the best possible educational experience. 

"Every child deserves to learn in an environment (that is safe, calm and purposeful) where they can thrive.'' 

Andy Hayman, CBE, QPM, Chair of the Trust Board, congratulated the school community, stating, "An Ofsted inspection is no walk in the park. 

"Inspectors thoroughly test what and how the children are taught, the safety of the school, the competency of teachers and how the leadership exercises their responsibilities.

"To have their first grading since becoming an Academy endorsed as 'good', is a monumental achievement. 

"Well done to everyone involved and thank you to parents and carers for their continued support" 

The primary school became an academy in 2019, making this inspection the first the school has had since the change.

It is a mixed academy for ages 4 to 11, with Ofsted reporting 108 pupils on the school roll.
