Central Primary School's 'good' Ofsted report 'a step in the right direction'
A deputy headteacher said she is "delighted" her Watford primary school has improved to become rated "good" in its latest Ofsted report.
Central Primary School, in Derby Road, had been rated "satisfactory" before an inspection in June upgraded its status.
Deputy headteacher Jessica Hooper said: "We’re absolutely delighted. It’s a step in the right direction on our journey, but it’s not the end.
"It’s excellent that we’ve established ourselves as a good school, now we want to move towards getting even better.
"We would all acknowledge the progress and development that the school has made. We have an incredible team of staff and pupils and are moving towards really good grades."
The Ofsted report said that Central Primary was a good school because pupils achieve well and make good progress, and achievement in English and mathematics is good.
The report added that "attainment in these subjects at Key Stage 2 is now better than in previous years and is in line with the national average".
