Ofsted joy for North Newton Primary School
STAFF and governors at North Newton Primary School were delighted with the feedback from Osted following the latest visit by its inspectors.
Ofsted made an interim assessment to ensure the school was meeting the same high standards it was achieving when it was last inspected in 2010, when it received a 'good' rating.
And after checks on pupils' attainment, progress and attendance, North Newton has been given the thumbs-up.
In a letter to parents, staff and governors, Sir Michael Wilshaw, Chief Inspector of Schools, wrote: “I am pleased to inform you that our interim assessment shows that the school's performance has been sustained and that we can defer its next full inspection.
“As a result, the next full inspection will not take place any earlier than the summer term 2014 unless we receive information in the course of the coming year that causes us to inspect earlier.”
