Alburgh with Denton Primary School headteacher Joel Crawley says he will strive for further improvement after Ofsted rated the school ‘outstanding’.
The School Road-based facility was last inspected by the regulatory education body in May 2011, when it was found to be ‘good’, while in 2008 it was deemed ‘satisfactory’.
Our view is that ‘outstanding’ is not an end result, but rather a confirmation that what we’re doing is working well and that we should continue in the same directionJoel Crawley, headteacher
Mr Crawley, who has been headteacher for six years, paid tribute to staff, pupils and governors.
“We are especially pleased that the inspector recognised the strong sense of community and teamwork that makes our school such a special place,” he said.
“We have come a long way over the past six years.
“We are very confident that the school will continue to maintain its high standards, and continue to strive for further improvement.
“We have been in Norfolk’s top ten schools for our Year 6 results for the past three years, and we have a dedicated and experienced group of staff who will continue to work hard to ensure that this school is the best it can be.
“Our view is that ‘outstanding’ is not an end result, but rather a confirmation that what we’re doing is working well and that we should continue in the same direction.”
