STAFF and pupils have been praised for their hard work and efforts by Ofsted inspectors in a report about their school.
Inspectors described the behaviour of pupils at Awsworth Primary and Nursery School as ‘outstanding’ and links that staff have forged with foreign schools were also recognised.
Headteacher, Jane Mainprize, said: “We are clearly delighted by the outcomes of the report, which affirms to pupils, staff, parents, governors and the wider community what a great place Awsworth Primary and Nursery School is to both learn and work in.
“We are particularly proud of the fact that the inspectors recognised the outstanding behaviour of our pupils and the safeguarding arrangements we have in place.
“Our approach to community cohesion was also described as excellent and the pupils’ spiritual, moral, social, and cultural development as outstanding.
“Staff work hard to enrich the education of our pupils, who in turn respond very positively to all that the school is able to offer them. We are all really proud of our achievements.”
Inspectors visited the school in June.
John Horwood, lead inspector, said: “The vast majority of pupils behave exceptionally, good progress is made as a result of good teaching and there are excellent relationships throughout the school.
“Mrs Mainprize and the teaching staff ensure that you are able to understand about how pupils in different countries and different schools live and learn.”
