Government inspectors who visited the South Gloucestershire school last month said that it has made good progress since being subject to special measures in June last year.

Inspectors also praised progress since the previous monitoring inspection in November 2011, highlighting improvements in the school’s teaching and learning as well as its leadership and management.

The school is now looking forward to building on these improvements with the appointment of a new Head Teacher from September 2012.

Faye Bertham has been working as one of two Partner Head Teachers since September last year and her appointment was confirmed by the Board of Governors on 26 March.

Chair of Governors Jim Lott said: “On behalf of the Governors I would like to thank the staff and children for all their hard work and dedication in achieving our latest Ofsted grading as ‘making good progress’ in all areas.

“I know that we still have some way to go before we are out of special measures but we are pleased with two ‘good progress’ judgements in both inspections and look forward to building on this excellent work in the coming months.”

South Gloucestershire Council Executive Member for Children and Young People Sheila Cook said: “I am delighted that the progress made by Stanbridge has been recognised by Ofsted.

“With a new leadership team and confirmed improvements in teaching and learning, Stanbridge will begin the next school year on a much firmer footing. Congratulations to the staff and children for all their hard work.”

Details of the school’s monitoring inspection report are available on the Ofsted website at
