A DUO in charge of a Didcot school have been praised for 'radiating devotion' to pupils.

Willowcroft Community School received the positive feedback in its latest Ofsted report, which concluded that it had maintained its previous rating of 'good'.

The inspector said headteacher Jane Hemery and deputy headteacher Amanda Doy 'work extremely well together' at the 454-pupil school in Mereland Road.

Ofsted's letter to the head, published on Thursday, stated: "You both radiate utter devotion to Willowcroft pupils, determined to see them all succeed.

"You both have a deep-seated understanding of needs of families the school serves, holding these firmly at the centre of your work.

"You can pinpoint precisely what the school needs to do to continue to improve and, most significantly, serve its community well.

"The school’s ambition of ‘working together, we will bring the school to the heart of the community’ is fully exemplified by your work."
