Willoughby Primary School is one of the elite group of the county’s schools to have been assessed by Ofsted as ‘outstanding’.
As of November 2017, out of all 337 schools in the county, 15% of Nottinghamshire’s primary schools were ranked as outstanding.
The School’s headteacher, Alan Guilder, and the chair of the school’s governing board, Adrian Bath, were recently invited to a reception at County Hall to celebrate Nottinghamshire’s outstanding schools.
Mr Guilder comments
“At Willoughby Primary, we are delighted to be recognised by Ofsted as an outstanding school. We aim to provide ‘learning for life’, in a friendly, caring, family environment. We have a vision for our school which strives to sustain and develop further our outstanding achievements.
To remain outstanding means a commitment to promote the highest standards of teaching and learning and to help every child to reach their potential in their progress and attainment. As a small, rural primary school, we are blessed to be able to ensure our focus remains firmly on every child as a unique individual.”
The reception was hosted by Councillor Philip Owen, chair of the county council’s children and young people’s committee, who commended the headteachers and their staff for ensuring that children secure the essential skills needed to allow them to achieve their potential.
