Dramatic improvements at a Weston primary school have seen it heralded as an example of best practice in a national publication featuring Prime Minister Theresa May.
The Parliamentary Review is published annually by the Government, and highlights success stories in every facet of UK life, including technology, healthcare, the environment... and education.
This yeart’s education section features three pages devoted to Milton Park Primary School, which has upgraded its Ofsted rating in 2017 from ‘requires improvement’ to ‘good’, with some areas assessed as ‘outstanding’.
The key aim of the document is to shine a spotlight on best practice, so that others may follow.
It is compiled by some of the nation’s leading journalists, and introduced by the Prime Minister – and Milton Park’s headteacher Lorraine Fitzpatrick said the school’s inclusion caps a successful year inspired by the hard work of school staff.
She said: “I am very proud of all my pupils, colleagues, parents and community; without them we could not have achieved as much in such a short space of time.”
And Gail Matter, current acting headteacher, added: “We are all delighted to have been part of this year’s Parliamentary Review, which highlights Milton Park as a warm, caring and nurturing school that provides excellent teaching and support to all our pupils.
“We believe that happy learners are successful learners.”
