Ofsted Report (most recent):
Our school was last inspected by Ofsted in October 2012, they rated the school as GOOD which is a great achievement for the school. Below are some of the key findings from the OFSTED report:
- Children achieve well in the Early Years Foundation Stage. Their good progress continues in reading, writing and mathematics in Years 1 and 2.
- All groups achieve well, including disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs.
- Teaching is good. Relationships in lessons are positive and pupils work hard. Teachers provide pupils with a wide range of interesting and engaging experiences that they enjoy.
- Pupils’ behaviour is good and this makes a strong contribution to the well-ordered school and the smooth flow of lessons. Pupils’ attitudes to learning are positive.
- Pupils feel extremely safe in school and have a good understanding of how to keep themselves safe and secure.
- The headteacher’s drive to improve the school is enthusiastically shared by staff. Leaders, including the governing body, successfully use training to improve the quality of teaching.

Kate Norman our Chair of Governors* commented following the inspection:
The OFSTED inspection in October 2012 recognised what a good school Ludlow Infants is, not just in academic achievement but in the positive quality of relationships between staff, parents and children. This result was due to the inspiring leadership of the headteacher and to the commitment of everyone who works there, paid and unpaid. We continue to work together to raise educational standards even further and help children learn in a happy, stimulating environment.
