A PRIMARY school near Chipping Norton is being led with 'calm purpose' to engage children in learning, Ofsted has said.

Wychwood CE Primary School in Shipton-under-Wychwood, which teaches 287 pupils, has been rated 'good' by the regulator.

A letter to headteacher Joseph Rubba said: "Parents are rightly confident in your calm and purposeful leadership and the dedication and skill of the staff.

"Teachers' expectations are high, and pupils respond with enthusiasm."

The curriculum was described as 'broad and rich.'

The inspector added: "It engages pupils well and provides them with plenty of opportunity for exciting experiences and memorable learning such as those provided by the outdoor-learning focus during the inspection."

Ofsted carried out the short inspection in May and published their feedback last week.

The school had previously been rated 'good' in 2015.
