Langley Mill Infant School and Nursery was given a glowing report by a church and categorised ‘outstanding’.
The Diocese of Derby highlighted the strength of the Church of England school’s leadership and its commitment for raising aspirations among other factors.
The report followed a recent Ofsted which praised the school for its ‘warm, welcoming atmosphere’ and graded it as ‘good’ overall for its effectiveness and capacity for sustained improvement.
The church report said: ‘This is a school where every child truly matters and is becoming aware of their uniqueness and potential as an individual’.
Headteacher of the Sedgwick Street school, Karen Scrivens, said: “We’re delighted to have been given two positive reports. It’s a tribute to the teaching staff as well as the hard work of the pupils and parents.”
Langley Mill is a Church of England controlled school so has a church inspection carried within eight weeks of an Ofsted inspection.
