Ofsted praise for ‘outstanding’ Beecroft Primary School


Beecroft Primary School in Burley continues to be an ‘outstanding’ school, Ofsted Inspectors have said.

The school, on Eden Way, was ranked as ‘outstanding’ in all five areas of assessment, including quality of education, behaviour and attitudes, personal development, leadership and management and early years provision.

“This is a school that has huge ambition for pupils,” inspectors said. “Pupils join the school from a variety of different backgrounds, but all receive an education that provides them with the best possible start in life.

“Pupils make exceptional progress through the curriculum. Pupils rapidly learn to read and develop an expansive vocabulary. They develop an excellent understanding of how their knowledge can be applied across different subjects. In the words of one pupil, ‘It’s like a spider diagram – everything links together’.”

There is also praise for pupils’ behaviour, the impact of the ‘innovative and relentless’ leadership team

“The school has developed a curriculum that has the highest ambitions for pupils. Leaders constantly evaluate, refine and improve the curriculum, which goes well beyond statutory content,” the report added.
