A lower school has maintained its ‘good’ Ofsted rating following a visit from inspectors in December.

Houghton Conquest Lower School was previously inspected in September 2010.

When watchdog inspectors visited last month they found the school has maintained a good quality of education and there’s a strong desire for all pupils to achieve highly through consistently good teaching.

A letter sent to headteacher Catherine McCarthy by inspector Linda Killman said: “Your strong desire for all pupils to achieve highly through consistently good teaching and to have equal access to rich, memorable learning experiences comes across strongly and is shared by staff.

“Pupils’ well-being, safety and welfare are equally important in this school; the views of parents, staff and pupils provide compelling evidence that this is the case. They agreed with inspection findings that pupils are happy, safe and well looked after.”

Her letter also said that the school is ‘moving from strength to strength’.
