A Pudsey primary school has received praise by Ofsted inspectors for its good quality of education.
St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School received an overall ‘good’ rating during a short inspection last month, with headteacher Clare Gardner and the overall progress pupils receiving praise.
The report says:
“Throughout the school, pupils have excellent attitudes to their learning, so lessons are not disrupted by poor behaviour. Pupils’ attainment in key stage 1 has not been good enough in recent years but Year 2 results were much better in 2018.”
There was also praise for safeguarding, pupils’ conduct, high quality work and middle leadership at the Mount Pleasant Road school.
Inspector Tracy Ralph has recommended teachers sharpen their use of assessment for learning, and use questioning more effectively to improve the rate of middle and higher-attaining pupils’ progress in lessons.
