A SCHOOL is celebrating after being graded ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted.

Inspectors said Edlington’s Hill Top Primary truly lives up to its motto, ‘Every Child, Every Chance, Every Day’.

Their report listed many impressive strengths, including the excellent leadership of the headteacher and senior leaders, the outstanding early years foundation stage, an excellent curriculum and an excellent system of care, guidance and support which ensures all pupils overcome any uncertainties and difficulties.

Having achieved rapid and sustained improvement Ofsted was impressed by the pupils’ “very good manners, excellent behaviour and exceptionally good attitudes to learning.”

Headteacher Beryce Nixon, said: “We have all worked so hard to provide the best possible education for the pupils at Hill Top and it is wonderful that Ofsted acknowledged all the efforts everyone has made.

“I want to personally thank the children, staff, parents, governors and the Edlington community for, without them, this would not have been possible and I would not have a job that brings me great joy every day.”
