The headteacher at Abbots Langley Primary School said she is delighted after the school was judged to be good following a recent Ofsted inspection.
Tracy Fielding visited the school, on Parsonage Close, in January and published her findings at the end of last month. The school was last inspected in May 2014 and also judged to be good.
Mrs Negrello, who took over as headteacher in September, was praised for her commitment to the school and the community.
The inspector said she found Abbots Langley a school where children and pupils feel proud to be and added Mrs Negrello acted quickly on areas in which pupils did not achieve as well in 2017.
She wrote: “You and your leaders are relentless in their motivation and enthusiasm to secure better achievement for pupils. Your work to raise the quality of teaching, learning and assessment is ensuring that all pupils are making the progress they are capable of from their starting points.”
Safeguarding at the school was found to be effective and Ms Fielding also praised steps taken to use assessment to improve the quality of mathematics provision and reading and writing provision across the school.”
Ms Fielding finished her report recommending that leaders at the school should ensure they carry out further work to develop positive parental relationships and continue to focus on improving disadvantaged pupils’ progress.
Mrs Negrello told AbbotsNews she was proud.
She commented: “We’ve worked hard since September and feel very proud to be head teacher. Staff pupils and parents are working together to move the school forward – our pupils are amazing and deserve the best education they can get. I’m excited to take the school into next chapter.”
