Dorchester Primary School Rated ‘inadequate’ By Ofsted

Manor Park C Of E First School Dorchester

Manor Park C of E First School on Melstock Avenue has had its rating downgraded from a previous inspection four years ago.

The school said it was very disappointed with the outcome of the report and will be taking the recommendations from Ofsted very seriously.

Following an inspection which took place on February 9 and 10 this year, the latest Ofsted report said that there were ‘widespread weaknesses’ in leadership, that the ‘quality of education is not good’ and that pupils ‘do not show respect’.

In describing what it is like to attend the school, the report said: “Pupils do not gain the detailed knowledge and skills they should across the curriculum.
