A primary school is living up to its motto of “aiming high together” after it was rated 'good' in an Ofsted inspection.

Saffron Green Primary School, Nicoll Way, Borehamwood, retained its rating - the second highest Oftsed can award - for the third year running in May’s inspection.

Headteacher Linda Storey said the school was ecstatic about its status but that teachers and children were to thank for its success.

She added: “It’s such a great result. We are all really proud of what we have achieved.

“All our children thrive and they excel in all their subjects. They have made a lot of progress, which is why we got such a good result.

“We have worked very hard to achieve this result and I’m really over the moon.”

Mrs Storey joined the school two years ago, and chose the motto in her first term as head teacher.

The Ofsted report praised the school for its above average marks in reading and writing, as well as improvements in maths grades.

It also praises the teachers, who have a “good subject knowledge and plan lessons well”.
