Well done to Headteacher Lynn Rae and her staff from Milecastle Primary. They have just received and excellent Ofsted report. The inspector indicated:
'The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. You and your leaders have set a clear vision in order to continue the school’s successful improvement journey. Your vision is shared by all your staff and governing body.
You set extremely high expectations and make sure that the school is a calm and purposeful environment in which the majority of pupils now do well, both socially and academically'.
It was pleasing to see that The Outer West Learning Trust was mentioned in the report:
'Strong professional development and networking opportunities through the Outer West Learning Trust have been used effectively to support staff development'.
Well done to staff, pupils and governors.
