Five Lanes Primary School continues to be a good school.
That’s the verdict of Ofsted in sectors following their visit to the ‘welcoming and inclusive’ Wortley school in May.
Inspectors praised the ambitious curriculum and a strong focus on the development of children’s language and vocabulary.
“Learning to read is a high priority at Five Lanes Primary School. Leaders foster a love of books and reading. Books are displayed and celebrated throughout the school. Children in the early years get off to a good start with learning to read,” the report adds.
“Pupils enjoy coming to this welcoming and inclusive school. They are happy and safe. Leaders are ambitious for them to do well.”
In grading the school as ‘good’ the report adds that some pupils become distracted and disengage from learning. “Leaders should ensure that the school’s behaviour policy is implemented consistently by staff in each key stage,” it adds.
