A primary school is celebrating working its way up the educational gradings ladder after being judged ‘Good’ by Government inspectors.
Grange Primary School, in Owton Manor Lane, Hartlepool, was ranked as ‘Requires Improvment’ when it was last checked by Ofsted inspectors two years ago. All schools are graded as either ‘Outstanding’, ‘Good’, ‘Requires Improvement’, or ‘Inadequate’.
But after two years of hard work and overcoming challenges by both staff and pupils at the school, they impressed the inspectors enough to move up a rung and be graded as ‘Good’.
The ranking has left the school delighted, with headteacher Leanne Yates saying: “We are delighted with the outcome of the recent inspection which recognises the journey the school has been on over the last two years.
“I am extremely proud of the staff team we have developed, who have worked extremely hard, showing tremendous dedication and drive to improve, keeping our children at the heart of everything we do.
“Our children are a credit to the school, and have really developed their love of learning, which they were able to demonstrate through the inspection. A key part of the school’s success has been the increased involvement with parents and carers, and we are really grateful for the support that they have shown through attending numerous school events and celebrations.”
