Bourn Church of England Primary Academy

Ofsted and  School Performance

Please find below a link to our most recent Ofsted Inspection Report, which graded the school as Outstanding. This inspection was in 2009, when the school was a Local Authority controlled school and was known as Bourn CofE Primary School. 

Since this inspection, the school has converted to Academy Status (see letter here) and is now known as Bourn CofE Primary Academy. 

Outstanding schools were formerly exempt from routine inspections

Between 15 May 2012 and 13 November 2020, maintained primary and secondary schools and academies judged to be outstanding in their overall effectiveness at their most recent section 5 inspection were exempt from routine inspections under section 5. This means that Bourn has not had an inspection since 2009.

These schools are now once again subject to routine inspections under section 5. All formerly exempt schools must receive an initial inspection under section 5 or section 8 before 1 August 2026. 

The Ofsted Inspection Framework has changed a number of times since the school was last inspected, with standards becoming more exacting at every change. We continue to work as hard as we can and aim to meet the highest standards possible.
