A SCHOOL is celebrating after being rated as good.

Warren Primary School, Gilbert Road, Chafford Hundred has been heavily praised by the education watchdog.

The school has been rated as outstanding for behaviour and attitudes and personal development.

The report states: “Warren Primary School sits securely in the heart of its community.

“In this highly inclusive school pupils with a wide range of needs are warmly welcomed.

“Pupils are polite and enjoy positive working relationships with adults.

“Classrooms are calm and productive places. This is a school where pupils learn well.

“Pupils respect and care for each other.

“Parents are overwhelmingly positive about the school, leaders and staff.”

Ian Boyd, headteacher, said: "As a school we are delighted that OFSTED have recognised that what we are a community school that caters for children of all abilities from all backgrounds.

"It was very pleasing to receive two outstanding judgements under the new inspection framework and for the impeccable behaviour of our children to be recognised by the inspectors.

"We are lucky at Warren to have such willing pupils, supportive parents and dedicated staff who all work together to achieve the highest possible outcomes.

"As a school we have the highest proportion of children with special needs of any mainstream primary in Thurrock and yet still manage to attain results at the end of Key Stage 2 that are significantly above national average.

"I am proud that we are the first school in Thurrock to have had a full section 5 inspection under the new framework and that we achieved such a positive outcome."
