Ouston Primary School is a happy and successful school where everyone is valued, respected and encouraged to achieve their very best. We realise that all children have unique and special qualities and our skilled and experienced staff work in partnership to provide the very best education for our children. Our school motto is ‘Trying our best and achieving success’ and we encourage our pupils to work towards this in all aspects of school life. By the time our pupils leave us and go on to secondary school we work to ensure that they are confident, enthusiastic young people who know the value of hard work, are able to achieve success both academically and in extra-curricular areas, enjoy learning and are polite, friendly and respectful towards others. We became a Primary School in 2014, following the amalgamation of the former Infant and Junior Schools. Following a successful Ofsted inspection in September 2017 in which we were graded ‘Good’, we converted to Academy status in February 2018 and joined Jigsaw Learning Trust. This is another exciting step for our school and we are already appreciating the benefits of working in partnership with others and the additional opportunities now available to us.
