THE Bournville estate primary school has scooped a national award for its staff.

Teachers at the Weston school in Kingsley Road have won an Inspiring Business Performance Ltd (IBP) Investors In People Standard for the way they develop, support and motivate the team for the benefit of pupils.

Headteacher Lyn Hunt said: “I am delighted that the great team work that exists at Windwhistle has been recognised as a real strength of the school. The children really benefit from this team ethos and the dedication of the staff.”

John Telfer, managing director of IBP, said: “Windwhistle Primary School should be congratulated for the way in which the staff have come together to produce real results.

“I hope other schools will look to them as a great example of what can be achieved.”
