The head teacher of a primary school in Wisbech was praised by Ofsted after it jumped up two gradings after a recent inspection.
Clarkson Infant and Nursery School, on Trafford Road, was told it required improvement in October 2013, but the school has reversed its fortunes to score ‘good’ in its March 2016 inspection.
Lead inspector Maria Curry described the school as ‘good’ across all four sections of its inspection, and cited new head teacher, Rachel Hartopp, as a key factor in its improvement.
It said: “The new head teacher has transformed the school’s ethos and culture through her relentless focus on raising standards and building high expectations among the whole school community; staff, governors, parents and pupils.”
Ms Curry’s report says that reading, writing and mathematics have ‘improved rapidly,’ and that the achievement of disadvantaged pupils is rising because the support provided by the school is ‘well planned and appropriate.’

Mrs Hartopp said: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank the pupils, staff, governors and all parents for their continued support. We are looking forward to developing into an outstanding school with time.
“It is a privilege to be associated with a school that continually strives to achieve the best for its children.”
