PAINTBRUSHES were brandished by pupils at Loughton Manor First School when they took part in a creative arts week before half term.
The youngsters were enjoying a double celebration for all their hard work as they displayed their creative efforts and took pride in their latest Ofsted report.
The school has been classified by inspectors as ‘outstanding’ and parents, pupils and teachers are thrilled at the news.
Maria Piascik, a governor at the school, said: “I am part of a team of extremely willing and hard working governors who take an active part in supporting the most dedicated teachers that I have ever come across.
“All my children went to the school and I couldn’t have asked for a better start to their school life.”
The school actively supports the community by supporting work experience initiatives from Denbigh School.
Parents are also encouraged to go into the school to help host days such as ‘Dads behaving Dadly’ and ‘Girls just want to have fun’ to give them an opportunity to spend a day with their children at school.
In their glowing report, the inspectors described parents and carers as “overwhelmingly supportive” and explained that “pupils make rapid progress because of highly effective teaching, underpinned by thorough assessment of learning and an outstanding curriculum”.
