A Slaithwaite school is celebrating top marks during a successful year.
Slaithwaite C of E Junior School has gone from strength to strength over the last 12 months, following a string of pleasing inspections and awards.
The good news boost started last December, when the Holme Lane school was granted ‘good’ by Ofsted, while the pupils’ behaviour and safety was judged to be outstanding.
Six months later children and staff received even more good news, when they were crowned outstanding by the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools.
They described it as exciting and inclusive and praised its positive links and outreach with the community.
The good news continued in July, when the school was named as a outstanding sustainable school and was awarded the Green Flag status for the second time, due to its campaign to cut down on waste and promote green ways of living.
It then celebrated again later that month, when it received what head teacher Elaine Bradley has described as ‘outstanding’ KS2 results.
Elaine, said: “We have had a fantastic year.
“We’d like to say thanks to all the children, their parents and guardians and whole school community for making this possible.
“There has been excellent support from parents and carers, who have continued to support the school by organising fantastic fund raising and treat activities for the children.
“Now we hope to take out successes forward into the future.”
As a special thanks, the whole school was treated to a performance by a visiting theatre company, who entertained pupils with Red Riding Hood.
