A FURNESS school is ‘absolutely delighted’ after receiving a ‘Good’ report from its latest Ofsted inspection.

Low Furness C of E Primary School in Great Urswick thanks its ‘wonderful school team’ for its glowing Ofsted report following a visit on June 12.

Headteacher, Mrs Sue Little, said the whole school had ‘contributed brilliantly’ to the result, which saw its grading change from ‘Requires Improvement’ to ‘Good’.

She said: “We, as a school, are absolutely delighted with the report.

“We have a wonderful school team and everyone has contributed brilliantly to get this amazing outcome.”

Mrs Little praised the ‘exemplary’ behaviour and manners of all the school’s pupils.

“The children are all superstars and their behaviour and manners throughout the inspection was exemplary as it always is,” she said.

“Our parents and community are incredibly supportive of the school and contribute enormously in making it the inclusive, encompassing environment that it truly is.

“I am honoured to lead this school and consider myself to have the best job in the world.”

Mrs Little added: “In terms of Ofsted, we are delighted with the Good grading.

“We have worked hard as a team to strengthen our school and we are so pleased that our efforts have been recognised.

“Low Furness is a wonderful place to be and the report acknowledges this.”

In the report, inspectors said: “The leaders and governors have responded swiftly and vigorously to the recommendations from the last inspection.

“The school is now good and continues to improve.

“The improvements that leaders have made to the quality of teaching have improved pupils’ outcomes.

“Most pupils currently in key stages one and two, including those who are disadvantaged, are making strong progress in reading, writing and mathematics.”

Inspectors listed the areas for improvement as: stronger understanding of standards in subjects, ensuring teaching is challenging the pupils and improving the teaching of writing for early years.
