West Cumbrian village school praised for its progress

Broughton Moor Primary School has been rated “good” by Ofsted after inspectors found it had made progress.

BROUGHTON Moor Primary School has been rated “good” by Ofsted after inspectors found it had made progress.

The school was told it needed to improve after a previous inspection.

Inspectors visited on July 2 and found that significant work had been done under the leadership of headteacher Pete Dawson.

They said achievement was now good, with pupils gaining above average levels by the end of year six after coming from typically low starting points.

Behaviour was found to be outstanding, supported pupils’ progress, and teaching was rated as good and sometimes outstanding.

The inspectors said: “The headteacher is driving improvement through the school with energy, determination and skill, fully supported by all the staff and the governing body.

“He has reshaped staffing and introduced new ways of working to help raise achievement.

“Staff morale is high as the impact of these changes become apparent.”

They called on the school to improve teaching further and develop outdoor learning for younger pupils to develop language and number skills more rapidly.

Mr Dawson said: “Our SATs results are excellent this year but the most important aspect of our school is that everyone is very safe, very happy and we love coming to school.”
