A WATCHDOG has piled praise on one of the county's largest primary schools.
Bure Park Primary School in Bicester has kept up its Ofsted rating of 'good', following an inspection by the regulator at the end of November.
The school, which teaches 513 children, was taken over by headteacher Yvonne Hewson in September 2016.
Addressing Mrs Hewson in a letter, an Ofsted inspector wrote: "Since becoming headteacher, you have led the school with determination to ensure that all pupils can succeed.
"You accept 'no excuses'. Staff share your high expectations and desire to improve the school continuously.
"You have created an inclusive and caring ethos."
Ofsted said the school in Lucerne Avenue had a 'broad and exciting curriculum' and pupils demonstrated 'outstanding behaviour', aided by strong leadership.
The letter added: "Inclusion is at the heart of everything you do at Bure Park.
"Funding is used well to support pupils who need additional help."
