Pupils and staff at Colville Primary School are celebrating after education watchdog, Ofsted, recognised it as a good school. Last month Ofsted inspected the school and praised the strong leadership of the headteacher and governors for creating a dedicated and enthusiastic team. Ofsted found Colville to be a `warm and welcoming school' and the school's achievement in mathematics and reading was praised.Colville is one of the top schools for reading in the Royal Borough and a total of 82 per cent of children achieved Level 5 compared to the national average of 45 per cent. The Victorian building recently underwent a £450,000 renovation paid for by the Council and the school. The new facilities include two new reception classes, a special music centre and rooms for a breakfast club and play centre. This new arrangement has freed up room in the main building, providing space for a second music room and further specialist teaching of art. Colville School is recognised as a high-achieving music specialist school.Headteacher, Mr Jagdeep Birdi, attributed the school's success to the fact that:"Our children benefit hugely from small class sizes right across the school and we deliver a very broad curriculum, which includes specialised teachers for art and music."This is simply the beginning. It is a hugely positive foundation on which to build. And with the talent, dedication and enthusiasm of staff, governors and pupils, the only way is up". Councillor Emma Will, the Royal Borough's Cabinet Member for Education, said:"This is a great result for Colville and I am delighted for the teachers and children. I am sure the school will continue to go from strength to strength."
