Vast improvement for community school
The latest Ofsted report shows that a school in Shebbear has made great progress.
A community primary school has seen major improvements according to its latest Ofsted report.
Ofsted inspector Alison Cogher spent two days at Shebbear Community School last month.
Her report concluded: “This is a good school. Children make good progress and achieve well. Positive relationships between teachers, teaching assistants and pupils help to ensure that a ‘can do’ atmosphere permeates lessons.”
The glowing report is a major improvement on the last inspection in 2008, which rated the school “satisfactory”.
