THE safety and behaviour of pupils at a Grange-over-Sands primary school has been rated outstanding by Ofsted.

The watchdog revealed results of a May inspection, with the school taking a ‘good’ rating overall, and ‘outstanding’ for the way pupils are looked after and conduct themselves on site.

“I am delighted with the report which clearly celebrates the achievements and the special qualities of our school,” said headteacher, Phillipa Summers.


“As we know, Grange is a good school which aims to be outstanding in everything it does.

“The hard work and commitment of the whole school community has been recognised – it really is a team effort and each contribution is equally valued.

“The teachers, teaching assistants and support staff, governors, parents and carers, volunteers and friends of the school all enable our children to succeed and continually improve.”

The inspection was carried out over two days and inspectors observed nine lessons, listened to pupils read and took account of 27 questionnaire responses from parents and 12 staff.

They also held meetings with pupils, talked informally with them at break and lunchtimes and talked to members of the governing body.

In their final report inspectors said: “Pupils come to school very eager to learn and use every moment in school very productively.”
