A HEADTEACHER is celebrating her fourth "good" ofsted inspection in a row.

Linda Gildea has been headteacher of Spring Meadow Primary in Dovercourt for 13 years and has retained the school's "good" record for all that time.

The latest inspection in January saw the school judged using the tougher new guidelines, but still the school came out with a good grading across the board.

Ms Gildea said: "We are all very very pleased.

"At each inspection it gets slightly harder - this time it was a much more rigorous process in terms of what is expected.

"The bar has been risen."
