I was delighted to hear that Sherborne St John Church of England Primary School has had an excellent Ofsted report which praises the school, parents, pupils, governors and - particularly - the 'excellent' leadership of the Head - Tony Cox.
I know from my visits to the school how popular and successful it is, so I was not surprised to learn that OFSTED agreed.
The following section of the report sums it all up:
"This is a very effective school that provides a high standard of education. The leadership and management are very good. The curriculum is very good and the quality of teaching is good in each of the age groups. Almost half of the lessons seen were very good. The school gives very good value for money."
As the local MP, I congratulate all involved on this success. It was good to look in on the school at the Christmas Fayre and catch up with the rest of the news and the plans for the future.
