The achievements of pupils and the quality of teaching at a school has been praised by government inspectors.

Dunsville Primary has been visited by Ofsted, with the education watchdog classing the school as good - the second highest rating.

The inspection was the first since it became an academy.

Report author and lead inspector Marain Thomas said: “This is a good school which offers its pupils a good standard of education in a caring environment.

“Teaching is nearly always good, with some examples of outstanding practice. Pupils spoken to clearly enjoy learning and make good progress as evidenced by the quality of work in their books.

“Pupils’ achievement is good overall. The vast majority make good and better progress, often from low starting points.

“Standards reached by pupils at the end of year six last year were above the national average in reading and equal to it in mathematics and writing.”

The good rating is the same that the Broadway school received in its last inspection.

Headteacher Kevin Flint said: “I am extremely proud of what this report says.

“I would like to take this opportunity of thanking parents for their continued support, our children for their super attitudes to learning, our board of governors for their involvement and challenge and finally to the dedicated staff for their commitment and hard work.

“Our school is all about working together to achieve excellence through enjoyment and this report is testimony to that.”
