A fast-improving South Mimms primary school has been given the thumbs up by Ofsted.
St Giles Primary School in Blanche Lane, South Mimms, had previously been given an overall rating of ‘requiring improvement’ in an Ofsted report in May 2014.
This month the school has been graded as ‘good’ across the board in a glowing report, with some elements of teaching even recognised as being outstanding.
Ofsted inspectors wrote: “The headteacher has a very clear understanding of the school’s strengths and where further improvement is needed.
“Substantial changes to teaching staff have been managed very effectively.”
