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.

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.
