A Wembley school is celebrating after they were lauded as ‘outstanding’ following an extensive report from an education body.
The Ofsted report, published earlier this month praised St Joseph’s Roman Catholic Junior School in Chatsworth Avenue and means it has now improved on its previous rating of ‘good’.
In the report, the school was praised for its work across the board, including high levels of care and support, excellent teaching and a stimulating curriculum.
The school’s federation partner, St Joseph’s Roman Catholic Infant School in neighbouring Waverley Avenue was judged outstanding in 2009 and Pam Gibney, the executive head at both schools both schools had learned from each other to achieve the status.
