A Welwyn Garden City primary school had a visit from an ice cream van to celebrate its successful recent Ofsted inspection.
The review of Homerswood Primary and Nursery School in Kirklands resulted in an overall Ofsted rating of Good, after achieving that benchmark across five measures against which it was assessed.
Inspectors spent two days at the school on January 22 and 23 observing classes, conducting interviews and scrutinising self-evaluation documents and parent questionnaires.
Their report noted the school’s leaders had brought about rapid improvements in teaching and outcomes for pupils this academic year.
It stated that “teachers have good expectations of pupil’s progress” and “their high expectations of behaviour are reflected in pupils’ positive attitudes towards learning.”
