Pupils had something to celebrate on their return to school after it received an improved rating from Ofsted.

Broughton Community Infant School in Narbeth Drive, Aylesbury, was told it ‘requires improvement’ in 2013.

However, when inspectors visited the school just before the summer holidays they graded the school, which has 180 pupils, as ‘good’ and commended the behaviour of pupils which they described as ‘outstanding’.

Headteacher Debbie Standage said: “Staff, governors and pupils are very proud of the school and the improvements we have made over the last two years.

“We are now in a very good position to take the next steps towards an overall ‘outstanding’ provision in the not too distant future.

“We are particularly pleased that the pupils are so proud of their school, that they demonstrate a real enthusiasm for learning and that their behaviour is impeccable.

“We have a very safe and harmonious community.”

Inspectors said that ‘the headteacher, supported by senior leaders and governors, has high aspirations for the school.’

They added that ‘together they have brought about significant improvements in the quality of teaching and pupils’ achievement since the previous inspection.’

Inspectors added that pupils ‘were very proud of their school, and behaviour on the playground and in assemblies is impeccable’.

They added that ‘arrangements to keep pupils safe and secure are outstanding.’
