Welcome to Sylvester Primary Academy 


We are proud to be judged by Ofsted (2013) as a GOOD School where the Behaviour and Safety of Pupils is OUTSTANDING.


Quotes from the report:

‘Teaching is GOOD across school with some which is OUTSTANDING…Teachers use GOOD subject knowledge to plan interesting lessons’

‘Teachers use the range of subjects effectively giving pupils opportunities to research on their own and to explore new themes’

‘The GOOD curriculum plays an important part in making learning interesting and enjoyable and in broadening the scope of pupils’ experience, including their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.’

‘Pupils are polite and courteous to each other and to adults…Behaviour around the school, in assembly and in lessons is EXCELLENT.’

‘Safeguarding has a high priority and meets requirements…Pupils feel very safe in school and their parents agree.’

‘Leaders and managers are ambitious to improve further. They make rigorous checks on all aspects of the school’s work and take prompt and decisive action where necessary’
