A headteacher at a school in Hanney said she is "extremely proud of all our pupils" after the school was rated 'good' by Ofsted.

St James CE Primary received the rating after Ofsted's visit in February, maintaining their 'good' status from the inspectorate's previous visit in 2018.

Headteacher Lucy Ottaway said: "I am extremely proud of all our pupils, as I am of my staff, governors, parents and the community that surrounds St James CE Primary. We’ve all played our part in achieving our ‘good’ grading."

Ofsted said St James was as a "friendly and welcoming school" and "an inclusive place in which to learn".

Ms Ottaway added: "Ofsted recognised that we have high expectations of our pupils’ achievements, including those with special educational needs and disabilities, and that everyone is supported to achieve well.

"Our ambitious curriculum has reading at its heart and provides the stepping stones for building understanding and deep learning.

"We are currently in the process of refining assessment in foundation subjects so that we can identify early knowledge gaps and to this end deepen children’s knowledge.

"As a result of our staff developing caring relationships with our children, Ofsted said pupils feel safe, happy and supported when they might have any worries or concerns and it’s very heartening to hear this from our pupils.”
