Outstanding...Lavenham Primary School staff and pupils celebrate the latest Ofsted report.

A HEADTEACHER has heralded the progress made at her school after education inspectors gave it their seal of approval.

Jan Foster, who has been at Lavenham Primary School in Barn Street for nine years, said that pupils and staff were very proud after the school was labelled “outstanding” in every area following its latest Ofsted report.

She said: “During my time here we have had three inspections and we have gone from satisfactory to good and now outstanding.

“We are absolutely thrilled with the report and it shows we haven’t been standing still and are making progress.”

The inspection found that the school “develops every aspect of every pupil” and praised the positive relationships between staff and pupils, as well as the excellent care the 75 youngsters aged between four and nine receive.

Mrs Foster added that the school was well supported by parents and governors and the children’s willingness to learn.

“It has taken a lot of hard work to get were we are and at the moment we are enjoying getting the recognition we deserve,” she said.

“But we won’t rest on our laurels and want to keep improving.”
