St John's Primary school has retained its Good rating from Ofsted, with inspectors reporting this is a friendly, welcoming school.

The school, which has 423 pupils aged from two years old to 11, was inspected in March this year.

Today (May 26) the report was published by Ofsted which says school leaders have high ambitions for their pupils. It states: "Pupils are spirited and engaging. They are confident to strike up a conversation with school visitors and are eager to find out about the lives of others. Pupils enjoy the opportunities they have to develop roles and responsibilities. Pupils talk with excitement about receiving 'citizenship and character' awards. Staff support them to participate in experiences and build their skills beyond the taught curriculum."

Head Danielle West-Gaul also is praised indirectly for creating a great sense of team among teachers. In the report it is stated : "Staff are proud to be part of the school. They say that there is a sense of 'team spirit' among them. They appreciate the consideration that leaders take to support their well-being and assist them to manage their workload. Leaders prioritise pupils' and staff's mental well-being."
