The inspection was carried out by one of Her Majesty's Inspectors and one additional inspector.
Description of the School
This is an over-subscribed, average sized primary school serving an area of general social advantage on the outskirts of Guisborough, although 20% of pupils attend from outside of the catchment area. The number of pupils eligible for a free school meal is very low. The percentage of children with special educational needs or disabilities is the same as the national average. A small number of pupils have more severe and complex learning needs. The pupil population is mainly White British with some pupils who are at the very early stages of learning to speak English.
Overall Effectiveness of the School
Galley Hill Primary is an outstanding school which fosters a love of learning among its pupils. This view is shared by parents, and one explained it succinctly when writing:
'There is real sense that academic achievement, though highly valued, is not to be attained at the cost of the childs welfare.'
Ofsted Parent View gives you the chance to tell Ofsted what you think of your child’s school, including:
- how happy your child is at the school
- how the school manages bullying or challenging behaviour
If your child has special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), we will ask how well the school supports them.
The questionnaire can be completed at any time - you don’t have to wait until the school is being inspected.
We will use your responses to help us plan inspections. The information you provide can:
- inform discussions inspectors have with school leaders during an inspection
- help Ofsted decide when to inspect a school
