An out-of-hours club at a Queensbury primary school has been singled out for praise by education inspectors today.

The Kids Club at Foxhill school was one of dozens of schools, colleges and early years providers in the Bradford district inspected by Ofsted in the past academic year.

But only the Foxhill club was classed as "outstanding".

Manager Judith Oldham, praising the hard work and dedication of staff, said: "We've not stopped smiling since we heard.

"I think our success is down to a combination of things, including staff who love their job and do it well, wonderful parents who we have great relationships with and the headteacher at Foxhill."

Inspectors praised the out-of-school club which has more than 80 children on the roll between the ages of three and 12.

The Ofsted annual report identifies 1,476 outstanding premises in the region during 2005 to 2006. In West Yorkshire 20 schools and 17 early years settings were judged to be of the highest category.

Other schools highlighted are St Joseph's Catholic Primary and The Whartons Primary, both in Otley, and Tranmere Park Primary in Guiseley.

James Vincent, headteacher of The Whartons School, said: "I'm delighted to be judged an outstanding school.

"It is really about the hard work that everyone in the school does, from the staff and the teachers to the parents and governors."

Almost half of the ten schools in North Yorkshire graded "outstanding" by Ofsted inspectors are in Craven district.

Lothersdale and Kildwick Schools, along with Otley Street and Brougham Street Nurseries in Skipton, are among the county's high fliers.

It is the second time Otley Street Community Nursery School has found itself given the accolade.

Headteacher Elizabeth Sellers said: "It's something to be very proud of.

"I have always said it's the teamwork at all levels, you can't do it on your own. We have got a fantastic team."

Lothersdale headteacher Mary Hastings-Trew said: "The whole school community is delighted to receive this recognition of the quality of education provided by our school."

It is the first time that outstanding early years premises - including nurseries, creches and childminders - have been listed in the annual report.

Schools and colleges were judged on their overall effectiveness. Early years providers were also judged on their care and this must also have been judged to be outstanding.
