A Felixstowe primary school has continued to show outstanding improvements two years after it was deemed inadequate by the education watchdog.

Langer Primary Academy received a good Ofsted report with three areas of outstanding.

Inspectors noted that "children quickly learn to respect their classroom, playground and one another". 

The school was also rated good for quality of education and behaviour and attitudes.

This comes two years after it was rated inadequate by Ofsted.

In one area of the Ofsted report, inspectors said: “The youngest children in the early years receive a high-quality education. They are well supported and guided in their first year in school.

“Children quickly learn to respect their classroom, playground and one another. Their time in the early years helps them to lay down firm foundations on which to build as they move through the school.”

The inspection took place over two days at the end of September.

“Pupils are proud of their school, and they achieve well,” the report said. “They know that adults want the very best for them, and they feel safe knowing there is always someone keeping an eye out for them.

“Help is at hand whenever they need it, whether with their learning or in the playground. Care and kindness shine through.”

Toni Kittle, headteacher at the school, praised the “significant and sustained” improvements made which was the result of a huge team effort.

She explained: “We are very proud of the report and the fact academic outcomes at Langer have continued to rise and are now comfortably above the national picture in many areas.

“Every child at our school is included, supported and encouraged to do their very best. Our team work tirelessly and have a belief in what is possible for every child.

“I feel privileged to work within such a supportive community – including staff, parents, volunteers, governors and Unity Schools Partnership.

“I am delighted that our parents and their children can feel proud about attending Langer Primary Academy.”
