GREWELTHORPE Primary School is celebrating two successful inspections in the space of a week after an Ofsted official and a Church of England school inspector called within a few days of each other.

The Ofsted inspector gave Grewelthorpe a ‘good’ grade and the Church of England official praised the school’s caring ethos.

Headteacher Karen Butler said: “I am very proud to be part of such a wonderful community.

“The children, parents, staff, governors and many other community members all contribute to the continued success of the school and it is lovely to see the children flourish both academically and personally.

“I would like to thank everyone for all the strong support we receive.”

The Ofsted report also praised pupils’ “above average” achievement and good manners, and singled out the school’s “outstanding” curriculum which it said was tailor-made for Grewelthorpe’s children.

The inspector added: “Many excellent positive experiences ensure the pupils’ outstanding spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.”

The Church of England inspector said: “A very caring ethos, based on Christian values, continues to underpin the life and work of the school and its impact is very evident in the pupils’ good achievement and exemplary behaviour.”
