Most parents across the north of the county are pleased with their children’s schools, figures suggest.

A scheme run by inspectors Ofsted, which allows people to give feedback on schools, has had mostly positive responses from parents. Parents are also asked whether they would recommend the school.

Thrapston Primary School was one of the most highly recommended schools of those with a minimum of 10 responses in the 2011-12 and 2012-13 academic years.

Every single respondee said they would recommend the school, something which headteacher Nick Hearn said he was delighted by.

He said: “We recognise that working with parents is the most effective way to make children achieve their full potential.”

Other high scorers were Barton Seagrave Primary School, Rothwell Victoria Infants School, Glapthorn Church of England Primary School, Raunds Park Infants School, Oundle Primary School, Whitefriars Junior School and Raunds Windmill Primary School.

Henry Chichele School, Rushden, was the only one with a majority saying they would not recommend it. The school said a recent parent survey showed a significant positive change in their views.
