SHUTE Primary School is celebrating after receiving high marks in its latest Ofsted inspection.
Officials rated it “good” with “outstanding features”.
The result is a double success for Shute which was recently rated second in the county for the percentage of Year 6 pupils attaining and exceeding the expected level in English and maths.
Shute, one of the first in the country to be inspected under the new Ofsted framework, was particularly praised for the behaviour of its children, which was rated ‘outstanding’, with no evidence of bullying whatsoever.
