Back in December 2012, Haddenham Community Junior School was one of the first to "suffer" an Ofsted inspection that required its officials to apply different assessment criteria to those used for several years previously and the school was graded as "Requires Improvement" (previously deemed "Satisfactory").
Following the inspection by Ofsted in December 2014, however, Haddenham Community Junior School has regained its 'Good' status, with the "Behaviour and Safety of Pupils" being judged as 'Outstanding'.
In the latest school newsletter, it was announced that "we have just been able to compare our most recent SATs results with the rest of the 15,521 primary schools in the country."
"We are very pleased to announce that our Average Points Score (an average for the combination scores for Reading, Writing and Maths) put us in the top 5% of the country!"
What a great achievement!
Our warmest congratulations to Sue Lewin, her staff and the hard working youngsters at Haddenham Community Junior School.
