A WIRRAL primary school has once again been praised as 'Oustanding' by OFSTED following its latest inspection.

Gilbrook School in Woodchurch was awarded top marks in every category for the second time in succession.

Coming in for particular praise was the achievement, behaviour and safety of pupils, quality of teaching and the leadership and management of the school.

The school was described as making 'an enormously positive difference to the lives of its pupils.'

Headteacher Robert Richardson said: "Everybody at the school is immensely proud of this achievement, which is the result of hard work, dedication and commitment.

"Part of the work we do is to help other schools in Wirral to deal with challenging behaviour, and this is also something which has been taken into account."

Cllr Tony Smith, cabinet member for children's services and Lifelong Learning said: "I would like to congratulate everybody at Gilbrook on this remarkable report, which highlights a school that is achieving positive outcomes for young people and helping them to feel valued and included in their own education."

The report describes pupils from the school as being unanimous in stating that Gilbrook is the 'best school ever'.
