Creek and Spot Bay Primary School received a second ‘Satisfactory’ rating from inspectors, largely maintaining its individual grades while improving in a few areas.
According to the Office of Education Standards report, “The overall performance of Creek and Spot Bay Primacy School was judged as satisfactory. This was because attainment and progress, teaching, learning and assessment were satisfactory. Leadership, self-evaluation and staffing and the learning environment were also judged as satisfactory.”
Located on Cayman Brac, the school also received a 'Satisfactory' rating in January 2019.
The school improved its ratings in 3 of 18 individual areas, including earning the highest grade of 'Excellent' in 'students' civic and environmental understanding'.
Creek and Spot Bay improved its grades in 'curriculum' and 'health and safety' to 'Good'.
"Students expressed pride in being part of the Caymanian society, and enthusiastically shared history and traditions that they had learned about," according to the report.
Creek and Spot Bay has 95 students on roll, including a class of 3-year-olds in Nursery. The Principal is Claudette Lazzari.
The school has 32 students identified as having special educational needs (about 1/3 of total enrolment).
Inspectors said, "The quality of support for children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) was exemplary. The school provided a safe, supportive learning environment and facilitated regular participation in mainstream classes for students with SEND who were enrolled at the Beacon Learning Centre."
(Beacon Learning Centre provides individualised education services for Brac primary students with SEND.)
Because Creek and Spot Bay was rated 'Satisfactory', it will not be inspected again until the next cycle begins in 2023.
