Thrilled teachers and pupils are celebrating their school receiving its third ‘outstanding’ classification from Ofsted.

Slated Row School in Old Wolverton is a special school for pupils aged 4-19 with moderate and complex learning difficulties.

The school received its first ‘outstanding’ judgement in 2005, the second in 2008 and it has just received this most recent accolade.

Headteacher Liz Bull has been passionately leading the school throughout all of these inspections.

She is described by inspectors in their latest report – based on the autumn term of 2013 – as ‘an inspirational and extremely skilled leader’.

Pupils described the school as a very safe place to go in the report, with feedback from parents echoing their positive comments.

Ofsted’s report goes on to conclude that the school has managed to build on its best practice and has ensured a firmly established culture of continuous improvement.

Mrs Bull said: “This outstanding result shows that Slated Row School is indeed ‘somewhere really special’.”
