Pudsey’s Bolton Road Primary School continues to be a ‘good’ school, Ofsted inspectors have said following a recent visit.
The school was rated ‘good’ in five key categories: quality of education, behaviour and attitudes, personal development, leadership and management and early years provision.
Inspectors praised staff’s positive relationships with pupils and also highlighted the school’s curriculum, adding: “Leaders have designed a curriculum that supports pupils’ learning over time. It is well sequenced so that pupils can make connections in their learning and build on their understanding.”
Inspectors also praised the focus on reading and added: “Staff at Pudsey Bolton Primary School have high expectations for what pupils learn and experience. Pupils embrace these expectations. The school cultivates a culture that is safe and nurturing. Pupils feel happy and are safe.”
Inspectors noted the school should take further action to help staff to better use assessment so that pupils’ understanding is checked well.
