Teachers, parents and pupils at Sinnington Community Primary School are celebrating after being given a glowing report from the education watchdog, Ofsted.
Head teacher, Jill Wells, said: “We are delighted with our report. The inspection confirmed what we already believe – that we are a good school and that the children are making good and better progress from their starting points.
“By the end of Year 6, standards are above national expectations.
“The school’s motto is ‘Strive, Succeed and Shine’ – we certainly feel this has been reflected in the Ofsted Report.”
Ofsted inspectors said of the school: “Teaching is good and pupils are challenged.
“Behaviour is good and children show respect for adults in lessons and there is an enthusiasm, for learning.
“The headteacher has a thorough understanding of the strengths and weaknesses.
“Her enthusiasm and high ambitions are shared by staff, governors and parents.”
There was a bonus for the inspector during his visit – he and parents were entertained with a talent show staged by the children.
Ms Wells added: “The audience was enthralled by singing, dancing and magical tricks, all performed, filmed and compered by the children.
“It was a testament to the staff and pupils that they could give such a fantastic performance during two gruelling days of inspection.”
She said that Sinnington’s was regarded as a traditional school with family values and any parents were welcome to visit.
