A primary school in Sunbury-on-Thames, Surrey, that was previously in special measures has now been rated Good by Ofsted, following the report by Her Majesty’s Inspectors which noted the positive impact that Mosaic’s sessions has had on both pupils and parents.
Kenyngton Manor Primary School, was rated as Good across the board, for delivering an improved and effective level of education to all students. During the visit, the inspector sat in on one of Mosaic’s primary school mentoring sessions, noting the impressive benefits of the initiative in the written report.
The report highlighted:
“The curriculum, together with a good range of extra-curricular clubs, promotes pupils’ achievement and personal development effectively and provides challenge for all, including the most able pupils. The ‘Mosaic group’ is a weekly session for mothers and their daughters which promotes pupils’ self-esteem and culminates in a visit to a local university.”
Kay Scott, head teacher of Kenyngton Manor said: “We’re overjoyed to be rated ‘Good’ across the board in our recent Ofsted report, having so very recently been in special measures. It’s lovely to see that Mosaic’s work has contributed to our new and improved rating and it’s evident that both our pupils and their parents have learnt a huge amount by participating in Mosaic’s programme.
“Mosaic’s mission to raise the self-esteem of young girls, and to show them that they can achieve anything they set their minds to, regardless of their background, is one that we wholeheartedly support.”
Alice Chowen, Mosaic’s London and South East officer, added: “It’s great to have been part of Kenyngton Manor’s transformation and to see the staff’s hard work recognised by Ofsted inspectors.
“All the staff at the school have always been very supportive of the work we do here at Mosaic, so to see it noted in the report is wonderful. It illustrates that the positive work our mentors are doing is having an impact and more importantly, being recognised!”
