A GOOD quality of education continues to be provided at St John’s Mead Primary School, Chipping Sodbury, according to an inspector from Ofsted.

Sarah O’Donnell recently made a short inspection of the school, the first to be carried out since the primary was judged to be good in June 2013.

She said headteacher Nicola Berry and other senior leaders were “highly ambitious” for all pupils.

A plan drawn up in response to disappointing results in 2014 had led to improvements in children’s writing across the school.

Swift action was also taken when maths required improvement, resulting in standards achieved in the subject getting better.

Ms O’Donnell said governors knew their school well and pupils were keen to learn and eager to challenge themselves.

She said: “Parents are sure any concerns will be listened to and firmly believe the school is well led and managed.”
