IT’s time to find out who’s got top marks in the new Scores on the Doors results.

The hygiene ratings from Calderdale Council have been released for inspections carried out in May.

They show schools, businesses and hotels celebrating five stars – while one cafe will be looking for improvement after receiving no stars.

The kitchen at St Augustine’s J & I School, Hanson Lane, Halifax, secured a top rating for the second time.

Head teacher Leona Binner said: “It’s a lovely achievement and we are very pleased for the kitchen staff.

“We’ve had five stars before but that was before our two new kitchen staff started in April last year so it’s great they’ve kept up the high standards.

“It is very important that parents see we take cleanliness in the school very seriously.”

Elsewhere seven other schools and nurseries picked up a top score as did Eureka!, the children’s museum, and Lee Mount Residential Home.

More than half of the establishments inspected were awarded four or five stars while just 15 were left with two stars or worse.

Popular wedding venue Scaitcliffe Hall, Todmorden was given just a one star rating and Cafe Shamms, Wards End, Halifax, was the only site inspected that picked up no stars.
