Busy Bees nursery in Beverley, is celebrating after receiving an ‘outstanding’ rating following its latest Ofsted inspection on 3 July 2018. Less than 10% of early year’s settings in the UK hold this rating.
The nursery received this exceptional ‘outstanding’ rating from Ofsted, the official body for inspecting schools, after attaining a perfect score in three areas of inspection.
There are celebrations at St Mary’s CE Primary School in Beverley after the school received a ‘Good’ rating in its recent Ofsted inspection. The school also received an outstanding grading for Personal development, behaviour and welfare.
Inspectors praised the Acting Headteacher, Laura Wallis, for her strong leadership. “Since taking on this role, she has revitalised the ethos of the school and rapidly improved teaching and learning,” inspectors said.
In a true show of community spirit, families from Cherry Burton and beyond gathered at the Humber Bridge last weekend to take part in a sponsored bike ride across the bridge to raise vital funds for local charity Cherry Burton Pre-school.
Despite a ferocious wind, supporters of this local charity in ages ranging from one year old to 73 years old, battled across the bridge on bikes, trikes, scooters and on foot, to the finish line where they were greeted by family and friends. All the children who took part have been busy earning sponsorship for this challenge and will altogether have raised around £700 for the Pre-school.
Mrs Dawn Joy Head teacher at Cherry Burton C of E Primary School was commissioned as the new Head during a special service led by Rev Richard Parkinson at St Micael’s church.
The aim of the Commissioning service is to present a new head teacher to the wider community. The service was attended by all 160 pupils, teachers, parents and representatives from the York Diocese, school governors, ER Education Services & the Parish Council.
A “high performing” further education college has become only the third in the country to retain its overall grading of “good” after a full Ofsted inspection since the assessment criteria was changed.
Bishop Burton College has been praised for its impressive success rates, inspiring resources and facilities and strong links with employers and other partners, which ensure the vast majority of students secure work or a higher level of study at the end of their course.
