FOR the third time in a row Barnsley’s Greenacre school has received an outstanding rating from Ofsted.

The special needs school on Keresforth Hill Road received the top accolade in their latest inspection, and were praised for pupils’ exceptional behaviour, highly proficient staff and for maintaining high standards of education.

Sarah Wilson, executive principal at the school, said: “Greenacre is a wonderful school where staff go above and beyond every single day to ensure our pupils receive the highest quality education and care.

“Whilst the verdicts of our pupils and parents will always be our most important judgement, it is a great achievement to be rated outstanding yet again by Ofsted, and we are very proud.

“As we look ahead, we are determined to build on our successes and continue to develop the services, resources and opportunities that we can offer Greenacre pupils – they deserve the very best and the best is what we are committed to providing.”
