Lostwithiel School judged 'Good' by Ofsted
Wednesday 10th December 2014
Lostwithiel School has been praised as a 'Good' school by Ofsted inspectors. Their report following a visit in December identifies a number of key education strengths within the 162-pupil primary, and says pupils are thriving at the school, due to the exciting outdoor environment, which is very well used, enabling them to learn through the childhood joys of exploration, adventure and play.
The inspectors say children make good progress and teachers have a good understanding of their pupils' needs and plan work that enables them to make good progress.
The report also highlights early years' provision which is of good quality and is a strength of the school.
Head teacher Carolyn Huxley is delighted with the outcome of the inspection.
"The inspectors found the school to be good in all five judgement areas. This is a major achievement for the school as the inspection process and standards have been raised since our previous inspection in 2009. However, while we welcome this endorsement of the work we are doing at the school, we know that there is still more to do. We will continue to work hard to give our children the best education possible."
