Calverley C of E Primary School continues to be a good school, Ofsted inspectors have said.

Inspectors visited the school for an ungraded inspection in January, and were pleased with what they saw.

“The school’s motto of ‘love, learn, care’ sums up daily life at Calverley Church of England Voluntary-Aided Primary School,” the report, which was published today, said. “Christian values are at the heart of school life. This is a welcoming and happy place to learn.”

There was praise for a ‘broad and interesting curriculum’ and pupils’ behaviour.

The report adds: “Reading is at the heart of the curriculum. Leaders promote a life-long love of reading. They provide pupils with a wide range of books to enjoy, many by authors from diverse cultures and backgrounds. Visits from children’s authors engage pupils and widen their knowledge of the world. All staff are trained to teach phonics well.”

Safeguarding arrangements were rated as effective at the school, on Town Gate.

The report notes that assessment in subjects other than English and mathematics is at different stages of development. As a result, teachers do not consistently identify and address gaps in pupils’ knowledge.
