ELMFIELD Rudolf Steiner School has been rated a ‘good’ school by inspectors.

The independent Stourbridge school, on Love Lane, impressed the School Inspectors Service (SIS).

The inspectors concluded that Elmfield ‘provides a good education for its pupils’ and that ‘pupils of all abilities make good progress in their learning across the school.’

Elmfield was rated ‘outstanding’ in pupils’ personal development and ‘good’ in four other categories – quality of education, safeguarding, leadership and effectiveness of Early Years’ provision.

The inspectors declared: “By the time they leave the school pupils are confident, thoughtful, articulate, polite and compassionate young people who are good learners with strong ethical values and a good understanding of British society and its institutions.”

Diana Ball, Education lead, said: “These results reflect the continuing hard work and dedication of everyone involved with Elmfield.”
