YATTON Junior School has received a top report from a team of Ofsted inspectors.Staff, pupils and parents are delighted after the school received ratings of good or outstanding in all sections of the report.In response to the overall effectiveness of the school, the Government inspectors described it as: "A good school, popular with parents and with strong links with the local church and village community. In this encouraging and happy environment pupils thrive personally and academically."The school was assessed and graded on various areas of education and did not fall below a rating of good. However, some areas were said to be in need of improvement.Pupils were described in the report as "not consistently aware of how well they are doing and how to improve."The school was also said to be 'too modest in its judgement of overall effectiveness.'Headteacher David Powell said: "I guess that you could describe us as outstandingly good. This is a very positive and powerful endorsement of our work. The one sentence in the report that really summarises what we are trying to achieve here is 'in this school every child really does matter'.
