THE appointment of Victoria Woods, a ‘dedicated and visionary head’ has been cited in a recent inspection report that praises St Mary’s CE Primary School in Banbury.

Victoria, who has just celebrated her first anniversary as Head of St Mary’s, was delighted that the five-yearly National Society Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) produced such a positive report.

“I am thrilled the Inspector noted the excellent behaviour and attitudes of pupils as well as our hardworking and committed staff who have really embraced the changes we have introduced,” she says.
