The headteacher of a Great Cornard school has praised the role of staff and the community after the school was rated as 'Good' by Ofsted.

Wells Hall Primary Academy was visited by inspectors last month, who said pupils “talk about learning with enthusiasm”.

A good-quality education and an ambitious curriculum were also singled out for praise, as was the high-quality professional development of staff.

Ros Towns, headteacher at Wells Hall Primary Academy, said: “We are very pleased with the report and feel it is a great reflection on the hard work our staff have put in.

“We also have great support from our families and this has helped us to make the progress we have made.

“This stands us in good stead for the future, with our pledge to make sure Wells Hall is an amazing place for every child to learn and grow.”

Following the two-day inspection, Ofsted reported that Wells Hall was a “calm and welcoming place, where pupils are happy to learn”.

Pupils were also said to take on different responsibilities, such as house leaders and junior librarians, with relish.

In their report, the inspectors said there was a “culture of care” in the school and added: “Pupils receive a good quality of education.

"New senior leaders have designed an ambitious curriculum so pupils can learn across a wide range of carefully planned subjects.

"All staff have high expectations for what pupils can learn and achieve.”
