A headteacher from Uphill praised the hard work of staff and pupils following a positive Ofsted inspection.

An Ofsted inspector visited Westhaven School, in Ellesmere Road, in July to monitor what improvements have been made since the last inspection when the school was judged to require improvement.

In her report, Tonwen Empson said senior leaders are taking ‘effective action’ to tackle the areas requiring improvement.

She added: “Outcomes for pupils are steadily improving due to the improvements to the quality of teaching and learning.

Headteacher Tracy Towler said: “We are absolutely delighted with the Ofsted outcome and I’m looking forward to a formal Ofsted over the next 12 months.

“I’m incredibly proud of all the staff, children and parents for working as a team to make improvements across our school provision.

“It’s great that all our hard work has been recognised.”
