Inspection report: Edison Primary School, 10–11 July 2019 Page 9 of 11 Information about this inspection Inspectors held discussions with staff, members of the governing board, parents, and leaders. The lead inspector spoke on the phone with the chair of trustees and met a representative of the local authority. Inspectors visited classrooms to observe learning. Most of these visits were made jointly with the headteacher and deputy headteacher. Inspectors met with a group of pupils to hear their views of the school. Inspectors observed pupils’ behaviour in lessons, in an assembly, during lunchtimes, at breaktime and around the school. Inspectors listened to a selection of pupils read. Inspectors looked at the school’s evaluation of its own performance, its improvement plan, external moderation and evaluations, records relating to behaviour, minutes of meetings of the governing board, risk assessments, first aid logs, policies and progress information. They also considered a range of documentation in relation to child protection, safeguarding and attendance. Inspectors carried out a scrutiny of the quality of pupils’ work in books, including English, mathematics, science and topic. Inspectors took account of 49 responses to the Ofsted online survey, Parent View, as well as 40 free-text responses. Inspectors also considered the 26 responses to the pupil questionnaire. Inspectors spoke to several parents during the inspection. Questionnaire responses from four members of staff were also analysed.
