Armley: Holy Family Primary School gets ‘good’ Ofsted report

23 February 2017

It’s one of the oldest Catholic primary schools in Leeds – and this week Ofsted inspectors have rated Holy Family Primary School in Armley as ‘good’ in their latest inspection.

Holy Family, which has served West Leeds for more than 140 years, announced it has maintained its ‘good’ rating following a short inspection by inspectors back in November.

The report highlights a number of strengths in the inner city school, including praise for the leadership by executive headteacher Peter McQuillen-Strong and his team. The strong leadership continues to drive improvements at the school.

Pupils’ progress in maths is described as ‘outstanding’ and the report notes:

“The curriculum is broad and balanced, covering a range of interesting topics and themes. Pupils talk with enthusiasm about the different visits and visitors, which enhance their learning. These opportunities provide pupils with a range of topics on which to write.

“Pupils enjoy a wide range of lunchtime and after-school clubs, which further enhance curriculum provision.”

The report can be read in full here.
