The headteacher of Denfield Park Primary School said she is delighted after the school achieved a ‘good’ grade in its Ofsted report.

The school, in Victoria Road, Rushden, achieved a ‘good’ mark in every area of inspection, apart from the category which judges the behaviour and safety of the pupils – with the school earning the highest grade possible, ‘outstanding’.

Headteacher Angela Griffiths praised the teachers, teaching assistants and the board of governors, but singled out the pupils for particularly strong praise.

She said: “We are absolutely delighted, we are so proud of the pupils.

“Here at Denfield they are wonderful children, they are such a pleasure to teach.”

The school was praised in the report, which was released on March 4, for its support of pupils and helping them create a positive attitude towards learning.

Mrs Griffiths said the school will now build on the report and work hard to become an ‘outstanding’ school.
