A WESTON school has been recognised at an event for outstanding groups.

Windwhistle Primary School on the Bournville estate, has been honoured by watchdog Ofsted.

Headteacher Lyn Hunt attended a glittering event in London last month, which was hosted by Her Majesty's chief inspector of education, children's services and skills for Ofsted, Christine Gilbert.

She praised the top schools, colleges, childcare and social care providers who had earned themselves a place in the annual list of outstanding providers from the organisation, which monitors such groups.

Ms Gilbert said: "I wholeheartedly congratulate Windwhistle Primary School on its success and hard work in delivering such high standards.

"Excellence does not happen by chance, the school has a real drive to inspire, challenge and support children and young people.

"There is no reason why everyone can't be outstanding.

"I hope Windwhistle Primary School will be a source of inspiration to others."

A report from inspectors described how pupils readily demonstrate an exceptional attitude towards each other and their personal development and their well-being is excellent.

It added: "The school ensures that all pupils are included in all the school does and values each one's efforts."

"The dedication of teachers and learning support assistants is excellent.

"The curriculum is very effective, and imaginative cross-subject links inspire pupils to get enjoyment from learning.

"Their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is outstanding."

All those who appear on the list receive commemorative certificates and are authorised to use an 'Outstanding Provider' logo.
