The Headteacher at a primary school near Tenbury Wells has spoken of her pride after it was awarded a ‘Good’ rating from Ofsted.

Emma Winters has praised the staff and pupils at Burford CE Primary School, near the town, and said she feels the positive outcome from the inspection is richly deserved.

The inspection report from Ofsted said that "Burford Primary is a warm, welcoming school" where "pupils and happy and love to learn", especially in maths.

It adds the "school’s ethos and shared values of kindness, compassion and trust are interwoven through the curriculum and daily life" and that the staff are proud to work there.

Visiting last month, Ofsted inspectors also praised the way the school caters for children with special educational needs and/or disabilities, with parents noted as saying that they really appreciate the way staff go above and beyond to offer support.

The inspectors commented on the fact that pupils’ person development is at the heart of the school and that they have "many opportunities" to develop their talents in a wide variety of areas including music and sports.

Mrs Winters said: “I am really pleased by the outcome of this inspection as I have no doubt the ‘Good’ rating is richly deserved for everyone within our school’s community.

“To read that our children were found to be happy and kind and that they behave well is very rewarding and our focus is always on giving them the highest possible standard of education we can. As the report says, we have a clear, shared ambition for all our pupils to achieve their best.

“I’d like to thank all the staff here for the part they play in making this a truly lovely school and one that continues to go from strength to strength.

“I’d also like to say thank you to all our children and their families for the support they give us and can reassure them that we all remain committed to providing the most complete learning experience we can for every single of our children.”
