A primary school in Grove says it "couldn't be prouder" after receiving a 'Good' rating from Ofsted for the first time in 26 years.

Millbrook Primary School received the recognition having previously received a ‘Requires Improvement’ grading.

The Vale Academy Trust school earned two ‘Outstanding’ judgements, for behaviour and attitudes and personal development, and 'Good' ratings for quality of education, leadership and management, and early years provision.

Head of school Faye Charlton said: "It was lovely that Ofsted recognised what we have known for some time now, that pupils’ behaviour is exemplary and we have an amazing school where we all work together - pupils, staff, families and community – to ensure that high expectations permeate throughout and our pupils achieve well."

Mrs Charlton added: “We couldn't be prouder - this report gives us even more reasons to be extremely proud of our pupils.

"It is wonderful to read that: 'Pupils see Millbrook as an exciting and happy school; classrooms are free of disruption; pupils are polite and courteous and show their ‘Millbrook manners’ consistently well'".

“Our journey is of continual improvement and so we will strive to push ourselves to develop and ensure we offer a positive, safe and successful learning experience for all our children. I have no doubt that we will achieve our ultimate aim of being an outstanding provider in the near future.”
