The headteacher of Wells Hall Primary Academy has praised the role of staff and her school community after it achieved a “Good” rating by Ofsted.
The Great Cornard primary school was visited by Ofsted inspectors last month who said pupils “talk about learning with enthusiasm”.
A good quality education and an ambitious curriculum also came in for praise alongside the high-quality professional development for staff.
Ros Towns, headteacher at Wells Hall Primary Academy, said: “We are very pleased with the report and feel it is a great reflection on the hard work our staff have put in. We also have great support from our families and this has helped us make the progress we have made.
“This stands us in good stead for the future with our pledge to ‘reach for the stars to make sure Wells Hall is an amazing place for every child to learn and grow’.”
Following the two-day inspection, Ofsted reported that Wells Hall was a “calm and welcoming place where pupils are happy to learn”.
Pupils were also said to take on different responsibilities, such as house leaders and junior librarians, with relish.
In their report, the inspectors said there was a “culture of care” in the school and added: “Pupils receive a good quality of education. New senior leaders have designed an ambitious curriculum so pupils can learn across a wide range of carefully planned subjects. All staff have high expectations for what pupils can learn and achieve.”
