Rucstall Primary School

A caring, fun loving, learning community


At Rucstall Primary School we are proud of the recognition our Ofsted grading and reports have given the school's hard work over the years. Below are some quotes from our most recent inspection and links to our last two reports.


What our March 2023 Ofsted says about us:


'Rucstall Primary School continues to be a good school. There is enough evidence of improved performance to suggest that the school could be judged outstanding if we were to carry out a graded (section 5) inspection now. The school’s next inspection will be a graded inspection.'


'Pupils flourish at Rucstall Primary School. Staff care for pupils very well, getting to know their individual interests and personalities.'


'Pupils say that this is a school where you can make friends easily and people are kind to each other.'


'Pupils achieve exceptionally well here in a full range of subjects, living up to the high expectations of their teachers. They enjoy remembering what they have learned before and showing others what they know.'


'Teachers have high expectations of all pupils.'


'Pupils make exceptional progress in their reading. Teachers are highly trained, so lessons are delivered with accuracy and pace.'


'Pupils’ behaviour is exemplary.
