School Description

Although pupils like coming to Garboldisham School, they are receiving a poor quality of education. This is because curriculum plans have little structure and coherence. This weakness is very apparent also in the early years. Children and pupils do not learn as well or as much as they should. Despite this, pupils enjoy what they do learn. They like learning about the AngloSaxons in history and about sound in science. They take part in sporting activities and competitions. Pupils in Year 6 are looking forward to their residential trip. There are strengths in the school’s work. Pupils’ behaviour is good. Older pupil ‘buddies’ take care of younger ones at playtimes. At lunchtimes, pupils learn to share by helping themselves and others to food as it is passed around the table. Pupils said that bullying is rare. They know they can tell an adult if they are upset or worried about anything. Teachers and teaching assistants work together to provide an effective level of pastoral care for each pupil. Pupils say that staff are ‘strict but kind and help you out’. Staff know each pupil well in this small school. Leaders make sure that the school’s strong ethos is part of each child’s experience. Pupils enjoy learning hymns. They listen to a variety of stories about world religions. Pupils know to treat others as they would like to be treated themselves. However, the curriculum is not giving pupils enough understanding about the wider world, and the different cultures within it.
