PUPILS and staff at Longney Primary School are celebrating double success.
Not only has the school in Chatter Street received ‘good’ in its recent Ofsted report but it was also awarded the Green Flag Eco Schools status for the second time.
Inspectors praised behaviour and attitude towards learning as well as commenting that the children were ‘pleased with, and proud of, the school’ during their visit in the penultimate week of the summer term.
Then the assessor form the Eco Schools organisations turned up to carry out the Green Flag Eco assessment the day before term ended.
Headteacher Penny Cartwright said: “It was certainly a very busy end of term however the report reflects our strong tradition with reading and the high attainment achieved by our pupils.
“I am pleased that the inspector recognised the strong and effective teamwork of staff and also the help and support of parents.”
Over the summer the school has also heard is has been successful is securing funding from the British Council to take part in a Comenius partnership project.
This means that staff and pupils from Longney will be working with and visiting schools from six other European Countries over the next two years to explore the similarities and differences in their cultures.
