Suffolk school’s praise “well deserved”
Elveden Primary School has been rated ‘good’ by schools inspectors following a period of instability.
The school had previously found itself with three temporary headteachers and poor results but a recent visit by Ofsted found it had significantly improved.
Lead inspector Robert Greatrex praised the school for its management, pupil support and learning.
He said: “Key to the school’s success is the excellent drive and ambition for all pupils to achieve all that they are capable of. Leaders have been single-minded in pursuing high-quality teaching and learning so that pupils’ progress is rapid.”
Lessons were said to be planned “meticulously” and pupils were always “at the cusp of new learning”.
