GOVERNMENT inspectors have praised a Doncaster special school in its latest Ofsted report.

North Ridge Community School, on Tenter Balk Lane, Woodlands, for pupils with severe learning difficulties, was described as a ‘good’ school in all categories by inspectors who visited last month.

The report stated pupils made good progress in reading, writing and maths because they were taught well.

Children in the foundation stage made good progress in communication.

The sixth form was outstanding and enabled pupils to gain excellent life and work-related skills, and vocational qualifications.

The report said the school was not yet ‘outstanding’ because, in a few lessons, teachers did not use enough strategies to move the most able pupils’ learning fast enough.
