Weston St Mary Primary School holds 'street party' to celebrate good Ofsted report




Weston St Mary Primary School ended its year with a “street party” to celebrate its “two jumps” upward in terms of standards.

Pupils, staff and parents were invited to the festivities before the end of the summer term after the school’s latest Ofsted report showed it to be “good” in all areas.

The work of executive head teacher Alison Flack, head of school Rachael Walker, children, teachers and governors, over the last two years has taken the school out of special measures and into a position where an Ofsted inspector said: "The quality of education that pupils receive has improved significantly."

Weston St Mary Primary School's most recent Ofsted report said: 'The quality of education that pupils receive has improved significantly.'

Mrs Walker said: "The parents cheered on the playground when when I went out to announce the results of the two-day inspection in June.

"We were so excited to share the news with them because the parents have taken a leap of faith with us, having been failed so many times in the past.

"The school has been on such a rough ride, but the parents stayed and trusted us, a huge thing to ask of them.

"We’re so pleased that we can provide the village of Weston with the good school it deserves."

In a letter to parents, Mrs Flack said: "We are overjoyed to share our recent Ofsted report with you and thank you for entrusting your children to us.

"It has, and always will be, an honour to serve them."
