The staff and pupils at a Wiltshire infants' school are celebrating after their Ofsted rating rose to Good at a recent inspection.

Inspectors visited Wootton Bassett Infants' School in January and found they were performing at a Good level in all five areas they are judged on.

This came four years after the primary school’s last inspection, when Ofsted issed a Requires improvement grade and claimed governors and leaders were “not managing the performance of staff effectively.”

But Wootton Basset’s rating has now climbed to Good in a report published this March.

Inspectors reported that the school is a “kind and friendly” environment where “everyone is welcome”.

The school’s leaders were described as “relentless in their drive to improve the quality of education since the previous inspection.”

Headteacher Alison Pass said: “We are thrilled with the report and the acknowledgment of the hard work everyone has put in.

“Wootton Bassett Infants is a special place to work and come to school.

“It has definitely been a team effort and staff and governors would like to thank our families for their continued support, positive comments and the cake that kept us going.

“We are really buoyed by the positive content of this report but will continue to develop and strive to make learning fun for everyone that joins us”.
