Wembley primary school hosts double celebrations
Hats off to year six pupils
Its hats off to a group of year six pupils who celebrated a double whammy on their final day at primary school.
The 11-year-olds from Chalkhill Primary school in Barnhill Road, Wembley, took part in a graduation ceremony to mark their transition to their secondary schools while celebrating an improved Ofsted report last week.
Following an inspection by the government’s education watchdog, the school has been bumped up to the ‘good’ category from ‘satisfactory’.
Rose Ashton, the school’s headteacher, said the hard work of the year six group was crucial in helping the school move up a level.
She said: “Ofsted judges everyone on their year six progress and attainment.
The strength of our year six over the past three years is one of the main reasons we have made it.”
