Blakehill Primary School is celebrating being judged as good for the second time following its latest Ofsted inspection.

In a very complimentary report the inspectors commented on how the ‘school is improving’ and also the ‘good downloadprogress because teaching is good’.

The inspectors found that a key strength of the school was its behaviour of pupils and there were outstanding examples of this.

When talking of Leadership and Management, the inspectors said:  “The headteacher and assistant headteachers have a clear vision for the school to provide the best possible education.  They consistently share their high expectations with all staff, pupils and governors.”

The report also says:  “This is a happy school, which is held in very high regard by pupils and their parents, staff, the local community and the local authority.”

Trevor Patterson, Headteacher, said:  “We are delighted with this report which sees us sustain our good judgement since the last inspection in 2010.

“The report confirms how we see the school and reflects the hard work of pupils, staff, governors, parents and the local community.”

Coun Ralph Berry, Bradford Council’s Executive Member for Children’s Services, said:  “This is an excellent result for Blakehill and all those who have worked so hard to bring about this positive outcome should be justly very proud.”
