A primary school in Winfarthing has cause to celebrate after it held on to its good Ofsted rating after a recent inspection.

An inspector visited All Saints' Primary School in May and released their report earlier this month.

In it, the school's leadership team was found to have "maintained a good quality of eduction" and "staff are eager to do their very best for all their pupils".

It found the school had worked hard to improve since the last inspection, especially providing more opportunities for pupils to use their mathematical and writing skills across a range of subjects.

The report praised a new handwriting scheme and a pupil tracking scheme, which the school had introduced.

Executive headteacher Maxine McGarr said: "We are all so delighted by Ofsted's confirmation that we remain a good school.

"This school means a lot to everyone involved and it is our mission to continue to improve so that our federation of schools are the very best they can be.

"Everyone at All Saints has shown an extraordinary desire to make this school a great learning space where pupils and staff can thrive and achieve."

The school's attendance dropped below the national average last year, but the report said staff had worked to improve this for this year. Pupil's behaviour, governor's involvement and safeguarding were all commended.

Finally, inspectors said the school needed to improve English and mathematics through new approaches to teaching, and for all teachers to share the same high expectations.
