FOUR Huntingdonshire schools feature on a Government report which recognises outstanding schools.

Published today (Wednesday), the annual report of Her Majesty's Chief Inspector of Education, Children's Services and Skills highlights nearly 2,000 outstanding schools.

In Cambridgeshire, 13 schools, 20 childcare providers and one college were judged to be providing outstanding care and education.

Among those are Eastfield Infant and Nursery School, St Ives, Huntingdon Nursery School, Hemingford Nursery School and Needingworth Community Pre-School.

A spokesman for Hemingford Nursery School told The Hunts Post they were "over the moon with the result".

For Eastfield Infant and Nursery School and Huntingdon Nursery School it is their second time in the list.

Kay Dimelow, headteacher of Huntingdon Nursery School, added: "It is the team work of the staff that has built up a reputation of high quality teaching."

Outstanding providers are given a distinctive 'outstanding' logo which they can use on documents and their website to communicate their achievement.
