Stowmarket primary school celebrates ‘outstanding’ recognition for PE and student welfare
A Stowmarket primary school is celebrating two major achievements after receiving a prestigious award for physical education and scoring ‘Good’ in its most recent Ofsted report.
In December The National Association for Physical Education (afPE) awarded Abbot’s Hall Community Primary school with the Quality Mark with distinction for PE and school sport.
Then in February the school was rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted, with personal development, behaviour and welfare categories graded as ‘Outstanding’.
Headteacher Rachel Bailey said: “I am delighted with both the afPE award and our recent OFSTED inspection.
“We of course have things to work on to improve further and we will diligently strive to do so but we are all proud of our school and what it has achieved.”
