YOUNG learners are celebrating their school’s achievement in being given the highest rating possible by an education inspector.
Ofsted recently awarded Byron Court Primary in Spencer Road, Wembley, outstanding status – a jump of two grades from the satisfactory score received in 2009.
The 615-pupil school was judged to be outstanding in academic results, teaching, behaviour and leadership following an inspector’s two-day visit in March.
Her report stated: “The school has seen a remarkable improvement in recent years, particularly under the headteacher’s highly effective leadership. Others in the restructured leadership team make a very significant contribution in supporting her drive for ever higher standards.”
Children’s attainment had improved to well above average and the teachers provided lessons described as imaginative and challenging.
Headteacher Martine Clark said: “We have been rewarded for the hard work and support of our teachers, support staff, governors, pupils and parents.
“They are a credit to us and I am proud to be the headteacher of such a dynamic school.”
