Im­proved out­comes for pupils at pri­mary

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - NEWS -

A pri­mary school where pupil per­for­mance has in­creased in the past two years has kept its ‘Good’ rat­ing from Of­sted.

Leighton Pri­mary School in Or­ton Mal­borne was com­mended for bet­ter “out­comes” for its pupils, as well as im­proved teach­ing, sup­port for the most vul­ner­a­ble pupils, and good pupil be­hav­iour.

The school was, though, told to make sure the most able pupils make the progress which they are ca­pa­ble of.

Head­teacher Hay­ley Sut­ton said: “The Of­sted out­come was a re­sult of the won­der­ful chil­dren that we have here at Leighton and the ded­i­ca­tion, skill and hard work of all the Leighton staff and gover­nors.

“I would like to per­son­ally thank our par­ents who are fully sup­port­ive of our school, en­gage with us through school events, and work ef­fec­tively with the staff and gover­nors to en­sure that we pro­vide the very best for the chil­dren.

“I would also like to recog­nise the sup­port that we have re­ceived from the lo­cal author­ity in en­sur­ing that we can main­tain our ‘Good’ judge­ment. We are al­ready work­ing hard this term to en­sure that as a school we ad­dress the ac­tions given to us by Of­sted to en­sure that we make the school an even bet­ter place for the chil­dren to come to, and to en­sure we strengthen all of the very pos­i­tive as­pects of our school.”
