An award for progress in literacy and numeracy has been presented to Ropsley Primary School.
The Basic Skills (Primary) Quality Mark Award was presented for the first time to the school and lasts for three years, after which another assessment will be made.
Headteacher Ann Cook said: “I’m very proud of all the hard work the staff have put in to ensuring good teaching and good practice for our pupils.”
The Quality Mark promotes, supports and celebrates progress and improvements made by schools in English and Mathematics.
A spokesman for the Quality Mark programme said: “Without these ‘basic skills’ of good communication, literacy and mathematical skills, individuals are disadvantaged throughout their lives - as learners, in the workplace and as parents, consumers and citizens, and so they form the bedrock of a good education.”
