A NAILSEA primary school is celebrating after achieving top marks in an Ofsted inspection.
Golden Valley Primary School scored the coveted mark of outstanding in all areas.
Inspectors highlighted consistently outstanding teaching, leading to pupils making ‘rapid and sustained progress’ in reading, writing and maths across the school.
The report also praised the children’s exceptional attitudes to learning and their behaviour towards each other.
In the report, lead inspector Sue Frayter said: “The school’s innovative curriculum provides a wide range of subjects and activities, including critical thinking skills, visits, topic wow days and mixed-aged community groups.
“The curriculum is highly effective in developing pupils’ love of learning, their academic, personal, spiritual, moral, social and cultural excellence, and their physical well-being.”
Headteacher Kevin Lynch said: “This is a true reflection of all the hard work and dedication of the staff, pupils, parents, carers and governors of Golden Valley Primary School – a real team approach.
