An infant school in Romford has been praised by inspectors following a visit.

Rise Park Infant School in Annan Way has been rated 'good' in all areas by the education watchdog Ofsted in a recently published report.

The school was inspected across two days in March and Ofsted praised teachers for delivering lessons with animation, getting pupils to take an active role to contributing and making provisions for those with special education needs.

It comes after Rise Park Junior School was also rated 'good' in a report published in January.

Cheryl Street, head of the junior school, added: “The continued hard work and dedication of the whole school staff will ensure […] the best possible education for all of our pupils.”
