The headteacher of a school in Raunds said she is delighted after the school achieved a “good” mark in its latest Ofsted report.

Julia Bowles, headteacher of Raunds Park Infants School, said: “We are delighted. We are pleased that the hard work of the governors, staff and children has been recognised.”

The school was rated “outstanding” for the behaviour and safety of pupils and achieved good grades in all other areas of inspection.

The report praised pupils’ behaviour as “exemplary” and added: “The school’s ‘Family Values’ curriculum has a strong impact on pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.”

Mrs Bowles said she was delighted that the school was recognised for the Family Values curriculum because it plays a major role in the school.

She added: “Our children are very well behaved and a lot of our teaching is based upon teaching our children about our values.”

The school was inspected over two days on Thursday and Friday, May 9 and 10.

Mrs Bowles added the school will work hard on the areas highlighted for improvement and hopes they can be outstanding in the future.
