TWO federated primary schools are celebrating a second ‘good’ Ofsted report.

Wolds and Vale Federation includes Luttons Community Primary School, which received a good Ofsted report last September, and Sherburn CE Primary School, which is now celebrating the same accolade in their latest inspection.

The latest report for Sherburn Primary said: “Pupils have a positive attitude to their learning which, when combined with their good behaviour, contributes to their good progress.

“In lessons, pupils work hard and co-operate well. The use of outdoor learning is a good example of how pupils use your rural setting as an inspiration for writing.”

The inspector added: “Parents are overwhelmingly positive about the standard of education the school provides.

“From the very positive comments I heard from pupils and from the parents I met, it is clear that a harmonious, safe learning environment which enables pupils to thrive has been created at Sherburn Primary School.”

Alison Stephenson, head teacher of the Wolds and Vale Federation, said: “The report underlines how hard the teachers, staff and children work to make Sherburn school a wonderful primary school. The staff are dedicated and committed to ensuring that our children get the best education.”

Val Bottomley, chairman of governors, added: “The alliance of Sherburn and Luttons Schools to form the Wolds and Vale Federation continues to go from strength to strength.

“Both schools are officially Ofsted accredited as ‘Good’ schools and both will continue to work hard towards becoming ‘Outstanding’ in the future.”
