PERSEVERING children are eager to learn at Stratford St Mary Primary School, according to Ofsted inspectors.

The school has been judged as a 'largely effective school' where the 'headteacher and staff promote a good climate for learning.'

Inspectors said: "Together with the governors they work successfully to raise standards. Programmes of work for the infant and junior children are rich and varied. Throughout the school, children's behaviour and attitudes to work are very good."

The report added: "The children are eager to learn, listen attentively and participate enthusiastically in lessons.

They sustain their concentration and are proud of what they do. They persevere when work is difficult or challenging. In group work they collaborate well. Parents say children like coming to school. The school works hard, successfully, to ensure high attendance."

Inspectors said standards were good in maths and English for pupils aged seven and 11, and the teaching of year six pupils was consistently good.

The curriculum for infants and junior children was also said to be rich and varied.

The way the school writes letters home to parents could be improved, education plans for children with special needs could be made more effective.

But headteacher Carol Austin said: "We are pleased to receive praise for the many things we do well, and the improvements we have made since the last inspection."

Helen Clover, chairman of governors said: "We are delighted with the positive nature of the report and its recognition of the efforts of all those involved with the school."
