Saffron Walden school rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted
A SAFFRON Walden school has been recognised as outstanding by Government inspectors for its “passion, commitment and energy”.
Staff, children, parents and governors of Katherine Semar Infant School, in Ross Close, are celebrating the outstanding success of a recent Ofsted inspection.
The school received an ‘outstanding’ judgement overall, including the teaching and learning aspects of the school’s Early Years foundation stage, behaviour, guidance, care and support, outcomes for all pupils and equality of opportunity for all.
It also reflected well on the school’s engagement with parents and carers, and pointed out the outstanding leadership and management of the school and its capacity to sustain improvement.
Long-serving headteacher Jane Gilmour was understandably proud of all members of the school community who, she said, have “worked so hard together to achieve this outstanding success”.
