Week commencing Monday 16th October
It's Enterprise Week!
Our first ever Enterprise Week is taking place in school this week. During the week, the children will take a break from the normal timetable to focus on developing their business and enterprise skills, within the context of Design Technology. A wide range of activities will be taking place, which include Year 5 visits to Bingley Grammar, a group of Year 2 children visiting Asda, team building exercises and talks by some of our parents. The week will culminate with a special Enterprise Sale for parents in the school hall from 2.30pm. At the sale, you will have the opportunity to buy a range of different items which the children have designed, made and marketed during the week.

Fabulous Ofsted outcome
We are delighted with the results of our recent Ofsted monitoring visit. The inspector has described our school not only as a good school, but an improving school, in which parents have great confidence and where pupils thrive. You can download the full report below.
School judged Oustanding by SIAMS
East Morton CE Primary School received its SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools) on Friday 10th February. The inspector, Mr Nigel Castledine, spent a whole day in school and during his visit, he met with a number of children, observed lessons, met with staff, met with representatives of the governing body, observed Collective Worship, met with parents and finally met with Reverend Mike Cansdale and John Froud.
As you will see from the report (below), the school was graded as good at its last inspection in 2012 and we are delighted that Mr Castledine judged our school to be outstanding upon the completion of his recent visit. He was particularly impressed with our school’s ‘broad, balanced and creative curriculum’, which he felt provides ‘time for reflection, awe and wonder, and the development of pupils’ higher order thinking skills in spiritual experiences that challenge and inspire’.
