A once failing primary school is celebrating after being taken out of special measures by inspectors.

Noel Park Primary School was rated ‘good’ across all categories by Ofsted, and is expecting an above average set of exam results this year.

Head of School Ann Palmer said that the staff were “absolutely delighted” with the report.

She added: “We have no doubt that Noel Park is a good school on the road to outstanding and we feel privileged to have the opportunity of leading such a committed and talented team of staff.”
