PUPILs and teachers at New Pasture Lane Primary School can pat themselves on the back after a very positive recent Ofsted report.
The school performed admirably and was rated as ‘good’ across all categories after the inspection on January 10 and 11.
The report highlights the effective use of technology to educate pupils, the children’s good behaviour and the high proportion of pupils reaching national expected levels in English and Maths in Year 6.
The report did point to some areas in need of improvement such as the need to raise the attainment in reading for more able bodied students, especially girls, and engaging more with parents and carers to support children’s education.
Headteacher Alison Tadman said: “We are very pleased with the results and their recognition of the teamwork and outstanding teaching involved to make this the great school it is.
“Obviously the report highlighted some areas in need of further improvement and we are working hard to address those points.”
“We’re proud that the inspectors noted the well mannered behaviour of our pupils and recognised the difference our extra-curricular activities such as school trips and our school radio station make to the children’s education.”
New Pasture Lane School teaches 160 children between the ages of 3 and 11.
