TEACHERS and governors of Finchingfield Primary School have expressed their delight after it was ranked ‘good to outstanding’ by Government inspectors.
The village school, which has 57 pupils on its roll, was visited by Ofsted inspectors last month and underlined its strong performance and improvement by scoring outstanding in one category and good in the other three.
Martin Lee, chairman of Governors, described the report as “real recognition of the hard work and dedication of all the staff”.
“Parents and governors are already aware of how strong the school is but it is nice to have public recognition of this,” he said.
“Alastair Robinson joined us as headteacher just a year ago and the improvement under his leadership was recognised in the report.”

Headteacher Alastair Robinson said: ‘This report reflects the children’s immense enthusiasm for learning, the team of staff’s hard work and dedication and the fantastic support provided by parents and governors.
