What OFSTED say

Gayton Junior School is a happy school.


In reading and mathematics, the small steps that pupils needs to make in order to reach… end points are clearly identified.


Pupils explained how feedback from teachers and from their classmates helps them. They know what they have done well and what they need to do to improve their work. The impact of this can be seen in pupils’ consistently high attainment in writing.


The Gayton Passport of experiences is a promise that every pupil will have a wide range of opportunities during their time at the school. These include baking a cake, flying a kite, camping outside overnight and creating a piece of music.


Pupils’ behaviour is exemplary. Pupils work hard to keep to the school rules as everyone wants to be a ‘super student’. In lessons, they listen attentively. They do their very best and relish challenge.


Pupils celebrate the diverse nature of the school. They accept that everyone is different. They show high levels of respect for the ideas and opinions of others. Pupils enjoy the cast array of trips and clubs on offer. They love the chance it gives them to develop their interests further.
