Pupils and staff at Pennyhill Primary School in West Bromwich are celebrating after being rated ‘good’ by Ofsted for the first time.

Michael Jarrett, Sandwell Council’s Director of Children’s Services and Education, said: “I would like to congratulate pupils, staff and governors on the success of their work leading up to the recent inspection.”

He added: “We are delighted that Pennyhill Primary School is now a ‘good school’.”

Jagjeet Padam, Chair of Governors, praised the efforts of all at the school. He said: “We are thrilled with this very impressive Ofsted report for Pennyhill. We have seen significant improvements and must thank all the staff for their massive efforts to make this such a great school for the children and parents we serve.

"This is a brilliant team effort, led by Elaine Williams, the Head Teacher, who has worked with determination to establish a culture of high expectations for pupils and staff.”

The report from the four inspectors, who visited the school in March, stated: ‘everyone loves to learn at Pennyhill. Pupils, staff and governors are proud to be part of the team.’

It also noted there is a focus on learning to read with a love of reading and a strong culture of learning for all in the school.

Miss Williams added: “I am exceptionally proud of our amazing children and the dedicated team. I am thrilled the inspectors recognised the tireless hard work, commitment, dedication and diligent professionalism which is clear across the whole school.

“It really is a team effort from children, staff, parents and governors. It is a privilege and pleasure to be the Head Teacher of Pennyhill and I know we will go from strength to strength.

“I love this school and am determined to strive for even more successes for our wonderful children.”
