A VILLAGE primary school is celebrating after it was ranked as good in a recent Ofsted report.
Brent Knoll Primary School was praised by inspectors for its ‘calm and quietly determined leadership’ and high standards of teaching, with a high proportion of students making good progress academically.
The school was visited on March 18 and 19 by an inspector who observed 11 lessons, assessed pupils’ work and read responses from 39 parents online.
In her report, lead inspector Joyce Cox wrote: “The curriculum is well planned and enables pupils to develop and demonstrate skills and attitudes that will allow them to participate fully in life in modern Britain.
“Relationships between staff and pupils are very positive – they ensure that pupils feel safe and secure, and love coming to school.”
She also praised the school’s early-years support and the work it carried out with parents, who she found were ‘pleased with the eduation and care their children receive’.
Brent Knoll’s chair of governors Hugh Mackay said: “I congratulate all of the school staff and pupils for their hard work in achieving the good judgement in all aspects.
“I would also like to thank parents and carers and governors for their great support.”
