A Weston school has been praised for maintaining its ‘good’ Ofsted rating.
Hans Price Academy was complimented on its ‘supportive’ leadership team and its ‘low-level disruption’ by the education watchdog.
The report added: “Principal Tony Searle has laid the foundations for improvements which have recently started to bear fruit. The school is increasingly the school of choice for parents because leaders have established a culture of learning and high aspiration.
“Pupils feel positive about their school experience. Staff have nurtured a welcoming, tolerant school culture where pupils respect each other and feel it is ‘okay to be different’.
“This is because good behaviour and the emphasis on learning enable pupils to feel safe and comfortable.”
Mr Searle said: “It highlights the excellent work of teachers and leaders at all levels as we strive to consolidate our work and build upon it.”
