Mawnan school Good rating from Ofsted
THE behaviour, attitude and safety of children at Mawnan Primary School is outstanding, according to Ofsted, which rated the school as good overall.
Head teacher Randall Brook was delighted with the result, and particularly pleased it had been identified as a "rapidly improving school where pupils make good progress and achieve well".
Mr Brook said: "Two and a half years ago, the school was rated as satisfactory, a position none of us felt we wanted. A lot of hard work has gone into raising expectations of everybody so we are thrilled with the outcome. Now we want to move onwards and upwards."
John Cavil, the lead inspector, said in his report: "In lessons, pupils' attitudes towards their work are exemplary, demonstrating their thirst for learning.

"Around the school, they are highly respectful and considerate, showing how proud they are of their school where everyone is valued and treated as an individual.
"Pupils respond to teachers' high expectations in lessons by working hard. They are taught at an early age to be self-motivated and are able to manage their own learning well."
The leadership and staff also received good comments.
Areas identified as needing improving included the way teachers encouraged children to present their written work and developed their extended writing skills.
