A HEADTEACHER has set her sights on building a new early years unit after her school received a glowing Ofsted report.
Alison Thomas, head teacher at Reed First School, was speaking after inspectors classified the school as outstanding in all areas.
Mrs Thomas said: "One of our targets is to replace the building which houses the early year's unit and staff room.
"It was an old channel tunnel building which was transported up here after the tunnel was finished, and the inspectors have obviously decided that it has outlived it's usefulness and have set us the target of replacing it.

Parents are said to have commented "very positively about the progress their children make and know that the staff include all pupils extremely well," while teachers are "very skilful at providing work and activities that are appropriate for every age and stage in their class."
Mrs Thomas added: "To get an outstanding report reflects on the team work which is put in by the staff, governors, parents, and the pupils.
"When you are a small village school everyone has to work together for the benefit of the children, and I think the report highlights how successfully we have done that. We're absolutely delighted to receive this news," she said.
