A primary school in Bridgwater has received a rating of ‘Good’ by OFSTED in its first ever inspection.

Northgate Primary School opened in September 2017 and says it has been striving for pupils’ success ever since.

The inspection took place in February this year.

Inspectors said:“Pupils are happy and proud to be part of this school.

“Leaders made their high expectations clear from the start, and as a result, there is a calm and purposeful atmosphere in the school.”

In light of its successful first inspection, the school received a letter from Hannah Woodhouse, Regional Schools Commissioner for the South West.

“As a brand-new school, achieving a Good judgement within three years of opening is no small achievement, and you and your team should feel very proud," she said.

According to ThirdSpaceLearning, Ofsted bases its ratings on the school’s quality of education, behaviour and attitudes, personal development of pupils, and leadership and management.
