Pupils and staff at Maryland Primary School have enjoyed a happy start to the new year after Ofsted inspectors judged them as ‘good’.
The school, in Gurney Road, retains the status it was given during its previous inspection in July 2013.
Inspectors who visited the school in December found that the school set “high expectations for what pupils can achieve” and “maintained the good quality of education in the school”.
They also praised the “clear direction for the school’s future improvement” and the way that staff “inspire pupils with unique opportunities”, citing a meeting with astronaut Tim Peake as one example of this.
The report, published this week, found that the progress made by pupils was good, and that effective strategies were put in place for those that needed help.
