A LOWTON school is celebrating after it achieved top marks across the board in a recent Ofsted inspection.

Green Meadow Independent Primary School was judged as 'outstanding' in all areas and said 'pupils make outstanding progress and achieve outstandingly well from their various starting points on entry to the school'.

Proprietor and head teacher Sandra Green said: "We are really impressed with the result, especially as the criteria for outstanding has changed and is getting a lot harder to achieve.

"One of the key aspects to the school's success is a rounded approach to the curriculum with inspiring educational activities and goals.

"There is a focus on independent learning and a supportive community within the school to help each child shine as an individual. We are planning to celebrate our fantastic achievement by releasing balloons sharing the wonderful news about our outcome."
