I visited a local school recently ranked "outstanding" by Ofsted.
Touring the Kingsdown and Ringwould Church of England Primary School site, I spoke to headteacher Jo Hygate about their recent success of in achieving an "outstanding" grade.
I was deeply impressed by the children's enthusiasm and the outstanding teaching at the school. Staff told me how the Deal Learning Alliance has allowed local schools to share ideas and work together to improve. It's so encouraging to see schools in our area going from strength to strength.
I am also supporting Kingsdown and Ringwould Primary with their efforts to become part of a multi-academy trust.
