Cawthorne celebrates its 'outstanding' report Cawthorne celebrates its 'outstanding' report

CAWTHORNE Primary School are celebrating after being labelled as 'outstanding' by Ofsted.

A published report gave the Taylor Hill school the highest available grade in all areas, including the achievement of pupils, the quality of teaching, the behaviour and safety of pupils and leadership and management.

Headteacher Erica Pursley said she was particularly pleased with the comment that 'high-quality teaching, a stimulating and creative curriculum and extensive care are at the heart of the excellent education pupils receive'.

"I was absolutely thrilled when I heard the news," she said. "It gives all the people in school the recognition they deserve for what they put in to make the school a success.

"The teamwork of the children, staff and parents has made the difference.

"We won't be resting on our laurels though and will continue to strive towards higher standards."

The school, which has 137 pupils, aged five to 11, was previously rated 'good' following an inspection in November 2007.

Well done to the school .
Llets hope it can be repeated in the poorer areas of Barnsley . But a suspect not . Please can The education authorities concentrate on the areas of Barnsley where children need more help .As well a praising the schools that do well. It just goes to prove £££ does influence upbringing and child development .

The children enter the school with above average abilities. Schools like that put on a show for ofsted. All that glitters... The schools that achieve greater "value added" for their pupils are the ones who are overlooked in the system.
