PICKERING Infant School continues to be rated good by Ofsted.

Inspectors said the leadership team had maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection.

Inspector Tracy Ralph said: “Parents and carers are very happy with the school. They say teachers give them lots of ideas to help them support their children’s learning.

“Staff feel valued and supported.

“They say that leaders take full account of the need to keep the workload manageable.

“The culture of respect embodied in the school’s strapline ‘learning, caring, sharing’ extends to staff as well as pupils.”

Head teacher Sarah Gillam said: “It is down to the efforts of every member of our school community that Pickering Community Infant and Nursery School is a great place for our children to grow and learn.”
