The chairman of a school’s board of governors has praised the hard work of the staff after it received a good rating from Ofsted.

Malcolm Peet, chairman of the board of governors at Finedon Infants School, said the good Ofsted report: “reflects the hard work, dedication and commitment that the headteacher, Avril Wise, and her staff put in on a day-to-day basis.

“It is particularly pleasing that the pupils were judged to have achieved well in the three key areas: reading, writing and mathematics.”

He added that he felt it was important that the inspectors thought the pupils were keen to learn and felt safe in the school.

The report, published last month, says: “This is a good school. From low starting points pupils achieve well in reading, writing and mathematics.

“Teaching is good. School leaders closely check the quality of teaching, and use staff training to improve it further.”

The inspectors also said that the 131 pupils have good relationships with adults and other children, and that their behaviour is generally good, with teachers insisting on good behaviour.

The curriculum was praised for offering a “wide range of learning experiences for the pupils”.
