OFSTED Inspection

We are delighted to share our  Ofsted report following our two-day, ungraded inspection on 7th- 8th February 2024.

As school leaders and governors, we are thrilled that the report recognises and reflects the values that we have set as the vision for our school and take great pride in receiving recognition for the way we embraced the arrival of our refugee families and for the personal development of all our pupils. 

The essence of Great Milton is captured perfectly in the words of the parent who observed, ‘The school feels like a family. Kindness and happiness are at the heart, which is what makes the children feel safe and secure to grow as individuals.’

Pupils, too, describe the school as being like ‘one big family’ with ‘one big heart’. Those who have joined the school later appreciate how they were made to feel welcome and how something ‘just clicks’ so that they feel they belong.

The school is equally committed to pupils’ academic achievement. The ‘Great Milton Way’, which includes ‘be ready, be respectful, be responsible’, underpins daily life in school from Reception upwards. Pupils work hard and know that it is okay to ask for help and to learn from mistakes.
