A PRIMARY school has been rated “good” by inspectors.

Ofsted visited Hove Junior School in Portland Road, Hove, on February 5 and 6.

They found staff were “utterly committed” to the school and its pupils.

The school teaches 825 pupils aged between seven to 11.

The report said: “Pupils like their school.

“They believe that they get a good education and that teachers help them to learn well.

“Pupils work hard in lessons and focus on their learning.

“Leaders have worked hard to unite staff... so that team ethic is strong.

“Everyone learns from each other.”

A “good” rating is the second highest a school can be given.

To improve to the highest possible rating, “outstanding”, inspectors made recommendations to the school.

They said teaching in all subjects, not just reading, writing and mathematics, should be revisited.
