School gets three 'goods' and an 'outstanding'
ST ERTH Community School has been celebrating after receiving an overall inspection rating of "good" from Ofsted.
The school received one "outstanding" grade, for the behaviour and safety of its pupils, and was rated "good" for the other three categories including achievement of pupils, quality of teaching and leadership and management.
Head teacher Niki Rogers said: "We're absolutely delighted with the report; it reflects the school very well. Lots of hard work has been put in from the teachers and governors and we've had a lot of support from parents as well.
"I think it's well deserved. Everybody really cares about the school and the children. Now we need to build on our achievements for the future."
The school follows a scheme called Diamond Rules For Life, which teaches children how to behave towards others in and out of school.
Mrs Rogers said that pupils were given awards for their good behaviour, which had helped the school achieve the "outstanding" grade in this area. The Ofsted inspection team, who visited in June, reported that the school lived up to its motto of "Caring, sharing, preparing for life".
