TWO schools in Islington have been awarded a seal of approval from the education watchdog.
Hungerford Primary School, off York Way, was described as a “good school” with some “outstanding features” in an Ofsted report last week.
The school, which was inspected in early March, has a high percentage of children who speak English as a second language and was praised by inspectors for the “close attention paid to pupils who experience difficulties with their learning or language development”.
The report also highlighted the good behaviour of the school’s 470 pupils which helps to create a “harmonious and purposeful environment”.
Hungerford Children’s Centre had a separate inspection on the same day and was also deemed to be a “good” school and was praised for its strong communication with families.
