Staff and pupils from Florence Melly Community Primary School in Liverpool are celebrating after confirmation that the school has been judged as outstanding after their latest Ofsted inspection report.
Through the guideship of headteacher, Ken Heaton the school has moved from requires improvement to outstanding over a period of four years since he was appointed.
Ken said: “For us this is a real good news story and a nice end to the academic year. We would like to thank all of our children who are an absolute credit to the school and of course the parents/carers.
“I went to the school as a child in the 1960’s and returned to be headteacher four years ago so it means a lot to me.
“I would like also to thank Liverpool Football Club and Everton Football Club and lots of businesses in the city who we have had so much support from.”
The report highlighted how: “School leaders are committed to making Florence Melly the best school it can possibly be and relationships between staff and pupils are exemplary.”
The report also noted that: “Leaders make excellent provision for pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. The school’s core values are well known by pupils and regularly promoted by staff. From a very young age, pupils learn the importance of tolerance and respect. They regularly learn about different cultures and belief systems. Consequently, they are extremely well prepared for life in modern Britain”.
