PUBLISHED: 08:00 30 May 2013

An East End primary school has been praised as “outstanding” across the board by education watchdog Ofsted.

St Paul’s Whitechapel Church of England Primary School got a clean sweep of top marks after a two day inspection in May.

The school, in Wellclose Square, was praised by inspectors as “highly effective in delivering outcomes that provide exceptionally well for all its pupils’ needs”.

Headteacher Terry Bennett said: “We are absolutely delighted that Ofsted have acknowledged the many strengths of St Paul’s school.

“The staff, children, governors, parents and carers and all members of the St Paul’s family should feel very proud of themselves.”

Inspectors singled out the standard of pupils’ reading and writing, as well as their positive attitudes, for praise.

Their report added: “Pupils are very proud of their school and all speak positively about how much they enjoy and value being a part of it.”
