A PRIMARY school is celebrating after being rated "outstanding" in its latest inspection.

All Saints Catholic Primary School in Golborne got top marks in all five areas it was marked by education watchdog Ofsted.

Its leadership and management, quality of teaching, learning and assessment and personal development, behaviour and welfare were all ranked as "outstanding".

The Hazel Grove school's outcomes for pupils and early years provision were also judged to be worthy of being placed in the best possible category.

The report said: "Leaders and governors have successfully created a culture of the highest aspiration for pupils and their teachers.

"Pupils achieve very well at All Saints. Pupils in every year group, including the most able and disadvantaged pupils, make substantial and sustained progress in reading, writing and mathematics.

"Children in the early years make strong and sustained progress from their various starting points because of the outstanding provision in the nursery and reception classes."

The inspection took place over two days from January 29 to 30.

Head teacher Wendy Hughes said: ‘I am incredibly proud and privileged to be the head teacher of All Saints Catholic Primary School.

"We are a warm, friendly, family-centred school who believe and value every child and adult who enters our doors.

"As such, we would like our whole school family to feel valued, happy, respected and to recognise the role they play in making our school a special place.

"The hard working, dedicated staff team are amazing and a pleasure to work with.

"They strive to make learning fun and engaging for all children.

"We share the belief that all pupils at our school deserve the absolute best and our aim is to support them in reaching their potential in every area of school life.

"We recognise the important role they will have in society as they grow and develop and so we are determined to give them firm foundations to be resilient and respectful citizens of the future."
