SIGNIFICANT improvements have been made at a Colne Primary School, a recent Ofsted report has revealed.
After years of being “satisfactory”, Primet Primary School, in Tatton Street, has been given a higher grade by inspectors.
Overall, “the good teaching, the caring environment and a stimulating curriculum” resulted in the school being awarded a “good” rating, and some of the lessons were also recognised as being “outstanding”.
Inspectors commented on the “good behaviour and friendly relationships seen in all lessons”, and praised the school for the fact that “pupils feel safe, secure and ready to learn”.
Headteacher Karen Blacoe said: “Last year our value added score was the highest of any primary school in Lancashire so we are pleased that Ofsted has recognised both the excellent progress that is being made by our pupils and the very high quality of teaching and learning in our school.
“We have combined small class sizes with an extremely high standard of teaching. Our children also have access to the best possible resources, particularly in computers and technology.
“But it’s also important that the Ofsted team saw that all our children feel safe and secure when they come to school.”
