OFSTED INSPECTION REPORT QUOTES REGARDING BUDE PRIMARY ARB
 
Infant School Inspection, February 2018
 
Staff go the 'extra mile' to ensure that pupils are happy and settled.  Staff work effectively with pupils who have a range of complex emotional and mental needs.  The care and nurture that staff provide enable vulnerable pupils from all backgrounds and abilities to feel appreciated, valued and welcomed.  Pupils and parents agree that this is a strength of the school's work.
 
Leadership changes to the ARB have brought about a greater emphasis on pupils' learning.  Leaders ensure that the teaching and provision on offer are effective.  As a result, these pupils now achieve well.
 
Teachers in the ARB are using new assessment information well.  As a result, pupils' learning needs are met. 
 
The pupils in the ARB make strong progress because teaching meets their needs well.
 
Junior School Inspection, December 2017
 
Pupils in the ARB are making good progress from their starting points.  Teachers are setting appropriate targets for them and they are developing their social skills alongside their reading and writing skills.
 
Recent changes to the leadership of the ARB have brought about a greater focus on pupils' learning.  As a result, teaching is more closely matched to pupils' needs.  Leadership systems are being refined and teachers' expectations are rising.
 
Leaders place an emphasis on providing a safe and caring learning environment for all pupils.  They are generally successful.  There is a wide range of pastoral support in place for pupils when they need it and a variety of interventions and therapies available to vulnerable pupils who need particular targeted support. 
 
As a result of the work leaders put in, a number of pupils with significant challenges in their lives are able to take part in the life of the school successfully.  Pupils who attend the ARB gain a great deal from this support structure and their personal development benefits considerably.
