Enabling children to flourish and succeed

Viscount Beaumont C of E Primary School maintains its ‘Good’ Ofsted rating with three ‘Outstanding’ features.

Staff at Viscount Beaumont are celebrating maintaining the school’s ‘Good’ Ofsted rating. 


An Ofsted inspection at Viscount Beaumont C of E Primary School, of Ashby Road, Coleorton has judged that the school has successfully maintained its ‘Good’ rating, following a two-day inspection on 10th and 11th October 2023. 


Inspectors found that Viscount Beaumont C of E Primary was a “small but mighty school that pupils are incredibly proud of” after the inspection at the start of the new school term. The inspectors also ranked behaviour and attitudes, personal development and early years provision as ‘Outstanding.’ Hayley Ryder-Smith, Head of School, said; ‘We are so proud that the report reflects the vision that we have for our pupils and staff to flourish and succeed.’ 


Inspectors recognised many strengths in the school including: ‘Pupils’ behaviour is exemplary,’ ‘They are highly courteous and well mannered’ ‘The school is well led and managed.’ and that ‘Pupils learn about the wide range of beliefs and cultures.’  

Viscount Beaumont’s joined Rise multi-academy trust in June 2022. The school had had a visit from Ofsted inspectors in October 2019, when the school was in a different trust, and inspectors had several concerns that the school might not be good. Mark Cole, CEO at Rise, ‘We are delighted that inspectors came back to Viscount Beaumont and saw the strengths that we see. Staff and local governors have worked tirelessly to improve the school and we completely agree with the pupil quoted in the report who described the school as ‘small but mighty.’ We worked hard in the early months to assure parents that we would improve all facets of their school quickly and we are thrilled that Ofsted could see that.’ 


Jo Westaby, Executive Headteacher at Viscount Beaumont's C of E Primary School, said: ‘we are so pleased that Ofsted recognised the many strengths of our lovely school.’
