Stratford school goes from bottom of class to top of the class

A SCHOOL in Stratford has gone to the top of the class.

Stratford Primary School was recently rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted inspectors – just four years after being graded ‘special measures’ and in need of urgent improvement.

In the Broad Street school’s latest report, inspectors described the pupils’ behaviour as ‘exemplary’, teachers’ subject knowledge as ‘excellent’ and the curriculum as ‘broad, balanced and exciting’.

Practical lessons and school trips were praised from extracting DNA from strawberries to visits to historical sites and theatres. Headteacher Gill Humphriss said: “We are over the moon that Ofsted recognised our school as ‘outstanding’.

“We are privileged to work with an extraordinary group of enthusiastic and wonderfully behaved children, talented and hardworking teachers, supportive parents, and a governing body who are ambitious for our pupils. This result is testament to the dedication and positive attitudes of all who are part of Stratford-Upon-Avon Primary.”
