PUBLISHED: 14:00 30 June 2017
Yatton Junior School has made great progress in the past two years, according to Ofsted.
The education watchdog rated the school as ‘requiring improvement’ in 2015 but it has achieved a ‘good’ rating this month.
Headteacher Jo Keeble said volunteers, governors, staff and pupils deserved the recognition.
She said: “We knew we had made significant improvements but to have that confirmed was brilliant.
“I think the whole school community has been supportive of the journey and the responses to the report have been lovely.
“We have fantastic teachers. I feel we have teachers here who want to unpick pupils’ learning and are committed to the children.”
Significant improvements in English and maths were noted by Ofsted’s inspectors.
Headteacher Ms Keeble’s ‘drive and determination’ was also praised.
She told the Mercury: “That means a huge amount to me; this isn’t a job to me, it is my life.
“I care very deeply about the education our children have.”
