‘We are absolutely delighted that the inspectors felt we would meet the criteria to be an outstanding school if we had had a full inspection. Hedworthfield Primary School and Language unit is a very special place for our children and the inspection result is a reflection on our whole school community and how well we work together to ensure the best possible outcomes for our children.’ Gemma Jeynes, Headteacher.

‘The school has gone from strength to strength over the past six years and I could not be prouder of the hard work of our staff and children or thank our parents enough for their support. It was wonderful to have the inspection team recognise the positive relationships in school, how safe our children feel and how ambitious our curriculum is to ensure they excel in their education.’ Gemma Jeynes,  Headteacher
