Primary school’s good Ofsted report

Have your say

EDUCATION watchdogs have dubbed a school good with some outstanding features.

Ofsted inspectors gave the thumbs up to Hylton Red House Primary School following a recent visit.

The Rotherham Road school was rated as good overall with achievement, quality of teaching and leadership good and was rated outstanding for behaviour and pupil safety.

In their report, inspectors said: “This is a good school. It is not yet outstanding because there is room for better achievement, particularly in Key Stage One and there are inconsistencies in the quality of teaching.

“High-quality spiritual, moral, social and cultural development promotes pupils’ high self-esteem and confidence which is reflected in their outstanding behaviour in lessons and around the school.”

They said children make good progress in reception class, overall progress is good in the Key Stages One and Two classes and by the time pupils leave Year Six attainment is above average.

Disabled pupils and those with special educational needs, including those attending the language provision unit, make the same good progress as other pupils do.

To improve further the school needs to increase achievement at Key Stage One and ensure teaching is consistently good or better across all subjects.
