IT’S thumbs up for Abbeywood First School after a short inspection by Ofsted inspectors resulted in it being rated as ‘Good’ – with the possibility of going higher next time round.

Writing to head of school Deena Frost the inspector Nicola Harwood said: “Based on the evidence gathered during this short inspection, I am of the opinion that the school has demonstrated strong practice and marked improvement in specific areas.

“This may indicate that the school has improved significantly overall.”

She goes on to recommend that a more thoroughly inspection is held to see if the school should be rate ‘Oustanding’.

Ms Harwood praised the school’s leadership, saying: “Curiosity – the key to unlock learning’ is the belief held by each member of staff in the school.

“Over time, you have created a very strong team of reflective professionals who are making a difference to the pupils they work with.

“You and the senior leaders are ambitious for what your pupils can achieve not only in your school but also throughout their education to 19 and beyond.”
