Bramley’s Christ The King Catholic Primary School has been rated a ‘good’ school by Ofsted inspectors.
The school, on Kings Approach, was rated ‘good’ for its quality of education, behaviour and attitude of its pupils and personal development. Leadership and management of the school and early years provision were also praised.
An inspector’s report says:
“Pupils are happy at this caring and inclusive school. The atmosphere is calm and cheerful. Pupils behave well in lessons and are enthusiastic about their learning. Teachers do a good job of helping them learn.
“Parents say that ‘Christ the King Catholic Primary is not just a school; it’s a family’.”
The report says mathematics and English curriculums have been planned well. Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) are supported well.
Areas to improve include teachers needing to be consistently aspirational in regard to the vocabulary they teach so that pupils develop their understanding over time. School leaders also need to work more closely with parents of pupils with SEND to ensure they understand the curriculum their child is accessing and how well their child is gaining knowledge in different subjects.
