Black Combe Junior School headteacher Catherine Dennison will push for the highest score possible during the school's next inspection after achieving a rating of ‘good’ from Ofsted.

Mrs Dennison started her role as headteacher last year, a few months before the Ofsted report for the school, which has 95 pupils aged between seven to 11.

She said: “I am delighted the hard work and commitment from everyone who is part of Black Combe, has been recognised.

"I am extremely proud of our school and everything we offer and achieve.

"We are going to continue to work hard and strive to achieve an outstanding judgement during our next inspection."

Ofsted rated the school ‘good’ in all categories, including; effectiveness of leadership and management, quality of teaching, learning and assessment; personal development, behaviour and welfare; and outcomes for pupils.

Teacher Mark Redhead said: “The inspection was a great opportunity to showcase all of the amazing things that happen every day at Black Combe Junior School.

"Over the course of the inspection the staff, children, parents and governors really pulled together to show how fantastic our school is."

Parents who spoke to the inspector or responded to Ofsted’s online survey, Parent View, were unanimous in their praise for the school.

It was the second inspection in a row by Ofsted where the school received ‘good’.
