NORTH Road Primary School in Yate has maintained its rating from education assessors and continues to be judged as good.

Ofsted’s Lorna Brackstone carried out the first short inspection since the school received the ranking four years ago.

She said: “The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. 

“There is a supportive family feel to the school which never compromises its effectiveness. Most parents are very happy with the school.”

Headteacher Sarah Stillie was appointed after the previous inspection and Ms Brackstone said governors and teachers felt she had had an impressive effect on the school and managed change very well.

Her report also said the school’s leadership team had ensured all safeguarding arrangements were fit for purpose.

Pupils reported feeling safe in school, were clear about keeping safe when using the internet and knew how to avoid falling victim to cyber bullying. 

Ms Brackstone also said the children had a strong understanding of the effect on their progress of school absence and showed a “mature responsibility” to attending school regularly.
