A HEADTEACHER has praised staff and pupils after her school was rewarded with a ‘good’ Ofsted.

Sue Wilson, executive head of Northern Parade infants and juniors, said she was ‘thrilled’ with the infant school’s second consecutive ‘good’ grading.

The good news comes after the junior school was taken out of notice to improve in March.

Inspectors who visited the infants school in June praised good relationships between staff and pupils, a well-planned curriculum, above average attainment in reading, writing and maths, and ‘oustanding’ leadership.

Mrs Wilson joined the infants school 10 years ago.

She said: ‘We were all so pleased with the report which we felt recognised the hard work all members of staff put in to help the children progress.

‘I’m incredibly proud of our pupils who are wonderful.’

‘This is proof the federation is working – while the infants are going from strength to strength, the juniors are also seeing huge improvements and are profiting from the extra support available.’
