A PRIMARY school in Stourport is the second in the Diocese of Worcester to be rated 'excellent' under the new inspection schedule.

Wilden All Saints Church of England Primary School is one of only two schools in the area to be given the highest judgement since the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) started its new schedule in September.

A report on the inspection on May 23 said the headteacher had created a "vibrant Christian learning community in which every member flourishes".

It went on to say that "dedicated staff and highly skilled governors share the Christian vision which inspires and directs all aspects of school improvement".

Pupils were found to have a "clearly understand that forgiveness and reconciliation have an impact on their daily lives".

Headteacher Francesca Fishwick said: "We are delighted that the way we live out our Christian vision on a daily basis has been recognised in this way.

"It is the strength of our community of children, staff and governors with the support of our families and friends of the school which makes Wilden a truly special place for us all to learn and grow together.”

Wilden School was rated 'outstanding' by Ofsted in 2014.
