West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper has lauded the achievement by Wrightington Mossy Lea Primary School in securing a Good rating from their recent Ofsted inspection.   

MP Rosie commented:
“After what was evidently a challenging time for Mossy Lea, the staff, the governors, parents, community and of course the pupils have all worked so hard to deliver a Good rating and restoring faith in this school. To move from Requires improvement as a school, to Good across all indicators is quite an achievement.”  

Rosie previously visited the school in November and met with pupils, parents, staff and governors, many of whom had only recently taken up post, but were keen to show the fantastic progress the school had made and its plans for continued growth in the future.    

On that occasion, Rosie had a detailed discussion with the entire governing body and headteacher, with the local education authority present, who confirmed that they could see real progress, stable leadership and a personalised and unique quality of education.     

While pupil numbers had fallen for this academic year, it is hoped and expected that on that back of the Good Ofsted rating recognising the quality at the school including the staff and governors, that numbers will increase for this coming September.   

Rosie Cooper MP further commented:
“When I visited last year, I saw what Ofsted will have also seen, a beautiful small school at the heart of the local village community. On that occasion, the pupils were so engaging and well-behaved and were testament to the good work being undertaken at the school. 

“Ofsted commented on the strong effective leadership which has led the way and that good teaching is firmly established, which I hope will now act as a springboard to further recruitment. 

They further indicate the school should build on this good work, which I have no doubt all at the school will continue to do.  

Executive Headteacher Andy Purcell and current Acting Headteacher Iain Pearson both said:
Everyone here has worked so hard to deliver a first-class education and learning experience to the children and with the incredible support from Lancashire County Council the school is thriving, and we look forward to the future with great optimism for Mossy Lea.  

“Ofsted have now joined LCC in confirming that we are school offering quality education to local children, with effective leadership, teaching and safeguarding.   

We will now build on this Good rating to ensure we continue to off top-quality education for many years to come.”
