Published: Thursday, 23rd November 2017
A primary school in Maidenhead has been judged ‘outstanding’ in every category by Ofsted at a recent inspection.
St Luke’s CofE Primary School in Cookham Road, an academy converter, was inspected back in October and the final report was published on 20 November.
The report stated: “The inspirational headteacher has led the school from strength to strength. Pupils now receive an outstanding education.”
Cllr Natasha Airey, cabinet member for children’s services, said: “This is a well-deserved achievement for the teachers, pupils and the entire school community – they should all feel incredibly proud.
“The borough now has 86% of its schools rated ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted with 33% outstanding; we will keep striving to better these figures all the time.”
Cllr Adam Smith, ward member for Maidenhead Riverside, said: “This is a magnificent achievement. The whole team at St Luke’s has got on with the job and it has had an amazing impact.”
The school teaches 300 pupils between 3 and 11-years-old.
Lead inspector Dom Cook’s report read: “Pupils’ behaviour is exemplary.
“Disadvantaged pupils, and pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities, achieve particularly well because of the additional high-quality help they receive.
“Leadership, including governance, is exceptional.
“The school is a haven of tolerance and respect, and everyone works together to celebrate both their diversity and inclusivity.”
