Pupils are celebrating after a Fylde school achieved an almost perfect report from watchdogs Ofsted.

Ribby with Wrea Endowed CE Primary School scored outstanding in all five categories following a recent inspection.

Headteacher Jan Potter said: “I am delighted, it’s a reward to all the staff and pupils for all their hard work.

“It’s excellent for them to be recognised, and provides the school with a real sense of achievement.”

The categories include leadership and management, behaviour and safety of pupils, quality of teaching, achievement of pupils and early years provision.

Mrs Potter added: “Our last report in 2010 rated the school as good, and since then the team have worked very hard to improve.

“The teachers, assistants and governors have all played a part, so it’s a real team effort.”

The headteacher believes the standard of teaching delivered to pupils is the key to the school’s success.

She said: “The outstanding teaching underpins everything we are doing at the school, the learning provided brings subjects to life, there are always lots of interesting going on at school for them to do.”

The Ofsted report praised the school for making every effort to provide pupils with a great learning experience.

Mrs Potter added: “I am extremely proud of everybody at the school, and it’s testament to the team here at the school that we received the outstanding report.”

The Ofsted report brings a very successful end to 2014 with notable achievements earlier this year.

Phonics test results for Year 1 put the school in the top five per cent in the country.

Mrs Potter said: “We won’t be resting on our laurels. We will attempt to build on this report and carry on providing the same quality to our pupils.”
