Gusford Primary School converted to become an academy in 2013 as part of the Active Learning Trust (ALT).
Ofsted most recently visited in November 2018 and although Gusford retained an overall rating of Requires Improvement, the effective work of the new leadership team was recognised with a grading of Good for Leadership & Management alongside Good for Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare. Inspectors noted that "Collectively , senior leaders are an effective team. They are well thought of and respected by staff. All staff are motivated to support continued improvement. They value the training opportunities they access. This was confirmed by the Ofsted staff questionnaire, where staff report feeling proud to work at Gusford."
The school has over 600 pupils and has a good reputation for supporting them to develop positive learning behaviours and works with organisations such as PiXL and Edison to develop this nationally.
The Local Governing Body share the ambition that every child will transfer from Gusford having been expertly taught, as well as confident and skilled to maximise the benefits and opportunities offered in their next stage in learning in secondary education.
As the school is a member of a Trust, it is part of a wider network of supportive schools. The Ipswich Hub and ALT schools from the Lowestoft and Cambridgeshire hubs, engage in regular school-to-school improvement networks, leadership development and CPD opportunities. Being part of the ALT enables our school to work collaboratively, not only with the Trust, to improve the outcomes for all our children, but in partnership with parents / carers and the local community.
