A Pudsey school has been graded as ‘good’ in all areas by Ofsted inspectors.

inspectors said that all members of the school community work as a team to make Pudsey Waterloo Primary School a happy and successful school.

Its last inspection came in 2017, when it was a state-run school. It was given a ‘requires improvement’ rating then, but it has since been taken over by the Owlcotes Multi Academy Trust.

Inspectors, who visited the Victoria Road school on May 10 and 11, praised the curriculum, adding: “Leaders have carefully planned what they want pupils to learn. This curriculum is ambitious and well sequenced. It helps pupils to build on what they already know.”

There’s also praise for the school’s reading and ‘carefully considered’ maths provision. The report said: “Teachers understand the importance of teaching key vocabulary and revisiting prior knowledge. Assessment routines include review lessons in mathematics and short quizzes in other subjects.”

The report adds that leaders should continue the work that has begun to strengthen speaking and listening across the curriculum.
