Staff and pupils at Layton Primary School are celebrating after being judged outstanding by Ofsted. Deputy headteacher Claire Jones and headteacher Jonathan Clucas go over the report with pupils.

The Meyler Avenue school, which is rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted, had been recruiting since Claire Jones was promoted to deputy head earlier this year.

Another former assistant headteacher, Katherine Shuttleworth, left to become head at Strike Lane in Freckleton.

Jonathan Clucas, headteacher, said Year Five team leader Catherine Rollinson will be assistant headteacher for key stage one and the foundation stage, while Liam Marshall, an external appointment, will be assistant head for key 
stage two.
