School is tops yet again.

THEY'VE done it again.

Whitburn C of E School has received another "outstanding" rating from Government inspectors Ofsted recording perfect scores.

The report is the latest in a string of successes at the school, in Nicholas Avenue, Whitburn.

And things are set to get even better when its 960 pupils move into a new building after Easter.

Ofsted inspector Gillian Salter-Smith praised the school's "consistently high" standards, the "exemplary" behaviour of pupils and found everything from leadership and management to teaching and learning to be "outstanding".

Head Paula Williams was described as "sharply focused and relentless in her determination to bring about the school's vision for all pupils", while senior and middle leaders, governors and staff are "highly effective", said the report.

Miss Williams said: "It is a very great privilege to be head of this wonderful school.

"This report is a welldeserved testimony to the dedication and efforts of our pupils, staff, parents, carers and governors.

"We will continue to take a very professional approach to all aspects of our work. There will be no complacency from anyone."
