A school in Daventry has been awarded a Good grade following the latest government inspection.

The Grange School was given the grade by government body Ofsted and was also judged in areas to be outstanding.

The school was also judged Good after the last inspection back in October 2010.

Headteacher Gaynor Yates said: “We are all thrilled with this outcome.

“Ofsted has significantly raised the bar for inspections since September. We are very proud of our school, our pupils, parents and our staff.

“We were particularly pleased that Ofsted recognised the excellent relationships between staff and pupils.”

The report which Ofsted wrote following the inspection in September said: “School leaders and managers are passionate in their drive and determination that the school continues to improve.

“The behaviour of pupils is outstanding. They know how to keep safe and they get on with each other exceptionally well. Teaching is good. Staff have strong working relationships with pupils. The marking of their work is thorough and identifies what they need to do to improve further.

“Senior staff lead the school very well. They make clear their expectation of everyone in seeking further success. Governors are supportive and share everyone’s pride in what has been achieved so far.”

The school also received a letter of praise and recognition for their work with other schools in the county from Alex Hopkins, the Director of Education in Northamptonshire.
