Watchdog praises primary

FRIETH Primary School has been rated “good” by education watchdog Ofsted.

FRIETH Primary School has been rated “good” by education watchdog Ofsted.

The school, which was previously graded “satisfactory”, was rated “outstanding” for the behaviour and safety of pupils and “good” in the achievement of pupils, quality of teaching and leadership and management.

The inspectors’ report said: “Teaching and achievement have improved considerably since the previous inspection as a result of the drive and determination of the headteacher, supported by an enthusiastic and committed staff team and governing body.

“Pupils, including those with disabilities and special educational needs, achieve well in English and maths to reach above average standards by the time they leave.

“Pupils’ behaviour is exemplary in lessons and around the school. They feel well cared for and extremely safe, a view shared by parents.”

Headteacher Lindsay Phillips said: “We are extremely proud of the children who are our greatest asset, advocates and allies.

“After only 16 months since the school’s previous Ofsted inspection, we now have the great pleasure of the label ‘good’ school with ‘outstanding’ safety and behaviour.

“The teaching team have spent every day giving 100 per cent to the children in their care, so this has been a great reward for them all.”

To celebrate the achievement, the school held a surprise party for the children.
