School Gets Positive Report From Ofsted

We Are Barnsley We Are Barnsley

A GRIMETHORPE primary school which has rapidly improved children's reading, writing and maths skills has been rated 'good' by Ofsted.

The education watchdog visited the Ladywood Primary School last month and said major strides have been made since 2011 - when the key areas were well below average.

"Throughout the school, pupils are making good progress and this year an increasing proportion are making more than expected progress," the report stated.

Ofsted also found the quality of teaching has improved and pupils are benefiting from more outstanding teaching.

Pupils' behaviour and safety is outstanding and leadership and management of the school is also good, inspectors added.

'Good' is Ofsted's second best rating in terms of school inspections.

Chairman of governors, Chris Sykes, congratulated everyone involved at the school.

He said: "The headteacher, Miss Grainger and the senior leadership team have successfully developed the school to be welcoming, friendly and a secure environment in which our children can thrive socially, emotionally and academically.
Grimethorpe should be proud of Ladywood."
