Old Windsor's St Peter's Church of England Middle School has been rated as 'good' in all categories by Government inspectors.

The school teaches 204 pupils aged between nine and 13 and its headteacher Andrew Snipp was singled out in the Ofsted report for having 're-established the school’s Christian ethos'.

The report said: "This is now woven into all aspects of pupils’ school life, creating a positive culture for learning."

Inspectors also praised the behaviour of pupils, the quality of teaching and leadership after spending two days at the school.

Cllr Natasha Airey, Royal Borough cabinet member for children’s services, said: “Congratulations to pupils, staff and parents at St Peter’s. This glowing report is a real testament to everyone’s hard work.

“It is not easy to get such a positive report from Ofsted and I am looking forward to seeing further achievements and recognition of progress at future inspections.”

The success follows years of hard work after the school was put into special measures and rated ‘inadequate’ during a November ,2013 inspection.

Lead inspector Caroline Walshe, who visited the academy in September with her team, said in her report: “Strong relationships exist between staff and pupils. Pupils’ conduct is exemplary and ensures strong attitudes to learning.

“Spiritual, moral, social and cultural opportunities are well developed and threaded through the taught curriculum.

“Pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities are supported well by teaching assistants who ably question and work with these vulnerable pupils in lessons.”
