Buckden Primary School has been rated outstanding in a new report issued by inspectors from Ofsted.
The report represents a remarkable turnout for the school, which inspectors said ‘required improvement’ when they published a critical report little more than 18 months ago.
Pupil behaviour, progress and their moral, social and cultural development were all highly praised by the Ofsted team, with particular praise for the standard of teaching.
Lead inspector June Woolhouse said: “Over the past two years, the head teacher has taken decisive action to improve the quality of teaching and learning across the school rapidly.
“As a result of high calibre professional training for staff in English and mathematics, and dramatic improvements to classroom environments, pupils’ progress in these subjects has accelerated rapidly.”
