STAFF and pupils had reason to celebrate this week when they were handed an ‘outstanding’ Ofsted inspection report.

The primary in Greenhill Road is the first school in the area to be given the top rating since Ofsted changed its framework for rating schools in September.

Headteacher Lin Williams said: “I would like to express my sincere thanks to our fantastic staff, wonderful governors, hard-working PTA, supportive parents and, of course, our amazing pupils, who make Sandford what it is: an outstanding school. We are very proud of our Sandford family.”

  • well done Lin and crew. Shame that other schools with blue jumpers can't raise their standards to this level.
