Emmbrook Infant School is celebrating after being judged 'Outstanding' by Ofsted following a recent inspection.
The school received the judgement – the highest possible – following an inspection in January.
Inspectors praised staff and governors for their relationship with pupils and for creating an environment to allow them to thrive.
The school was also commended for its broad and well taught curriculum, where pupils were seen to be flourishing. The report noted that hearing impaired pupils are receiving high levels of specialist care at the school.
Cllr Pauline Helliar-Symons, executive member for children’s services said: “I am absolutely delighted to hear about this well-deserved achievement. The school has made tremendous progress and this is the ultimate recognition of the hard work of Headteacher Corrina Gillard, governors and all of the school’s staff. Congratulations.”
The school will be celebrating its achievement with an ‘Ofsted celebration day’ on Tuesday 2 April.
