A school in Daventry is celebrating after it was judged to be good in its latest government inspection.
St James Infant School was judged to be ‘good with outstanding features’ in a report released by Ofsted.
It has maintained its standard after the last Ofsted inspection back in 2005.
The school’s headteacher, Judith Amery, said: “We are thrilled with such a lovely way to end the school year in which we celebrated our centenary.
“I am so proud of all the staff and children. They work so hard and I feel that this has been recognised.
“This comes at a particularly challenging time in education where the pressures of Ofsted and the demands of an ever-changing education system, including the more diverse model of schools, make it increasingly difficulty for schools to get the results we all work so hard for.”
The school was judged as outstanding in the area of behaviour and safety of pupils and the chair of governers was pleased with the verdict.
Greig Milsom added: “We are delighted with the judgement particularly when you consider all of the recent challenges schools have had to face and the almost continual changes made to the Ofsted framework.
“We feel that this result is testament to the hard work by all the staff at St James without which it would not be the safe, hardworking and fun school that it is.
“We also feel that this report officially recognises that we have an excellent platform on which to build a truly outstanding school.”
