Second top report for town primary

Share this article

A BARNSLEY Catholic primary school has received a top class report from a local diocesan inspector.

The findings build upon praise which Holy Rood Primary received in an Ofsted report late last year.

The school was praised for its effectiveness in providing pupils with a strong Catholic education and for its capacity for sustained improvement.

The second inspection aimed to support the school in further deepening the quality of its Catholic education for its 215 pupils aged three to 11.

The inspector found that the knowledge of the teachers and well-planned lessons enabled children to confidently express their ideas.

Throughout their schooling, pupils made good progress and by the end of Key Stage 2 the quality of work produced in religious education was 'excellent'.

The report also praised the strong links the school has with its local parish, providing pupils with a clear sense of belonging to a wider worshipping community.

Headteacher John Gregson said the success of the school was due to the 'dedicated commitment of the staff, governors, parents and carers working together to bring out the best in every child'.
