"I visit Ward End Primary school on a weekly basis to teach an adult group and I feel I must write to compliment the staff on what I see as I walk to the classroom.
The children are either working quietly in their classrooms or waiting to go outside. They are all smartly dressed and extremely polite. They step aside to let me pass and say hello. It is a pleasure to see such well organised and disciplined groups of young children and it is a credit to all the members of staff"

We’re delighted that your school has worked with the NSPCC Speak out. Stay safe. programme this term and would like to thank you and everyone at your school for your support. Children were so well behaved and respectful. They were an absolute credit to you and their parents.The welcome we had from the staff was very warm and friendly too.

"Leaders are aspirational for pupils and are focused on achieving the best outcomes for them. The leadership structure has ensured that all leaders respond well to the personal, social and academic needs of pupils. They set ambitious but realistic targets for them. All classes have a ‘class improvement plan’ where leaders identify specific support, key actions, staffing, resources and intended outcomes. Leaders monitor closely any attainment gaps between boys and girls and disadvantaged pupils, for example. They ensure that any gaps are addressed through effective teaching and interventions".
"The quality of teaching is consistently strong".

“Out and about before half-term, it was the first visit to Ward End Primary for a guided tour led by senior pupils in this “Rights Respecting” school. The pupils have really internalized and synthesized what Rights Respecting is all about and it struck me just how deeply they relate the articles in the Charter to their own lives and the lives of children around the world. Also met the budding entrepreneurs running the tuck shop and the new football team."
Colin Diamond (Director for Education in Birmingham)

" We would like to thank you for your inclusive attitude and all that your school has done to help support this pupil to make a successful fresh start at your school. Obviously without support such as yours, pupils can become very disadvantaged and find it difficult to get the opportunity to reach their potential in a mainstream setting"
