'Superb' Coney Hill school given glowing seal of approval by Ofsted
HIGH expectations, an "inspirational" headmistress and top-notch teachers are just three of the reasons behind Coney Hill Primary School being top of the class.
Ofsted inspectors have heaped praise on staff and pupils after rating it 'outstanding' in every possible area.
They heralded it a "beacon of excellence" as it leapt up a grade from 'good' after its previous Ofsted visit.
Headteacher Rachel Wadley said: "Everybody connected with Coney Hill Community Primary School is absolutely delighted with the outcome of our recent Ofsted inspection.

"Over the last 13 years, since the school was deemed as failing and in special measures, the staff, governors, parents and pupils have worked relentlessly and with 100 per cent dedication to make improvements and to ensure that the school provides the highest level of education.
"The whole school community is like one big family where the ethos is of care and respect where all families are included and encouraged to be involved in their children's education.
"Coney Hill is often associated with negativity so now, hopefully, this report will change perceptions, give the community something to be proud of and put Coney Hill on the map for all the right reasons."
The inspection report said: "The inspirational headteacher, superbly supported by the dedicated assistant headteachers and governors, leads the school strongly, so that this school has become a beacon of excellence."
So highly thought of is Rachel, she has been drafted in to help out struggling Moat Primary School in Matson too, which was rated 'inadequate' by inspectors after they visited in January.
She acts in an executive headteacher capactiy for that school, supporting operational headteacher Kirsti Ashman to turn things around.
