Delight at school’s progress

Have your say

A HEADTEACHER has expressed his pride after his school was given a glowing Ofsted report.

Andy Smith, headteacher of Glade Primary School, in Brandon, was full of praise after inspectors returned a positive monitoring inspection report, set to be released next Friday.

He said: “I am really proud of the staff and pupils and of the hard work that has led to this improvement.

“The whole staff are committed to raising standards and we will continue to develop and improve the quality of provision, opportunity and support for all pupils at Glade.”

The report was a follow up from the school’s last visit from inspectors in May 2010.

That report saw criticism of the school’s performance in teaching and attendance.

But according to Nichola Perry, additional inspector, the quality of teaching, learning and behaviour have all improved.

There was also praise for leadership at the school since Mr Smith took over in 2010.

It stated: “The headteacher has successfully steered the school through a difficult time.”
