n STAFF and pupils at a Weston school are celebrating after it improved from ‘satisfactory’ to ‘good’ in a recent inspection.

Schools watchdog Ofsted visited Windwhistle Primary School in Kingsley Road and said pupil achievement had improved ‘significantly’ since the previous inspection in 2012.

The report says all pupils make good progress and there is ‘highly effective’ teamwork between all members of the school.

Headteacher Lyn Hunt said: “We are delighted the report recognises the wonderful attitudes of our pupils to their learning and the accelerated progress they are making.

“As the report says, this is the result of the highly effective teamwork within the school. All staff want the children to do well and be happy.”
