Crossley Hall Primary School is celebrating its latest Ofsted report where inspectors judged the school to be good in all areas.
In a very complimentary report the Inspectors found that “Since the previous inspection, a new team of senior leaders, ably led by the long-standing Headteacher, has brought renewed vigour and enthusiasm to the School.”
“Leaders are rightly proud of the inclusive culture they have created. Pupils who need extra support for their emotional and behavioural needs receive it in a sensitive way by skilled staff.”
Headteacher, Michael Thorp, said: “The outcome from our inspection is testament to the hard work of staff, pupils and parents alike. We are very lucky to have excellent teachers who are dedicated to raising standards in this wonderful city.”
Michael Jameson, Bradford Council’s Strategic Director for Children’s Services, said: “This is an excellent outcome for Crossley Hall. All those who have worked so hard should be rightly very proud.”
The report goes on to say: “Effective teaching leads to pupils learning well and making good progress. Work in pupils’ books confirms the progress inspectors saw being made in lessons.”
“Inspectors share leaders’ confidence in the progress of current pupils because of the convincing evidence seen in pupils’ books and progress seen during visits to lessons.”
When discussing the school’s Early Years unit, the inspectors said: ”Parents are confident about the early years provision. They contribute to their child’s learning journal and benefit from a range of activities such as ‘stay and play’ and ‘take home and talk’ sheets.”
