CHILDREN, staff, parents and governors at a South Lakeland primary school are celebrating after an Ofsted inspection.

Lindale CE Primary School was rated as ‘good’ in all areas following a two-day visit in late January.

It comes just one year after the school was judged to be ‘requiring improvement’.

Headteacher Sarah Coleman, who took up the role in September last year, said: “We are all delighted with this Ofsted judgment. “The report reflects the efforts of the whole team - our fantastic children, staff, parents and governors.

“One of the great strengths of the school is its relationship with the local community and everyone should feel very proud of the improvements we have made.”

The report read: “From requiring improvement on all fronts, the school is now resoundingly good.”

It also saw ‘marked improvements’ in pupils’ progress across the school, especially in writing, and observed ‘good and occasionally outstanding’ teaching.

It said the atmosphere of some lessons was ‘electric’, and that ‘pupils are thrilled with what is going on, respond with exuberance and make impressive headway.’
