A primary school in Great Harwood has improved its Ofsted rating.
Inspectors visited Our Lady and St Hubert’s and gave the school a ‘good rating’ after previously been found to be ‘satisfactory’.
Sue Sharkey, lead inspector, praised school leaders in ensuring ‘rapid improvements’ made in quality of teaching and pupils achievement.
In her report she said: “The curriculum is enriched with many activities enabling pupils to explore a wealth of opportunities.
“Pupils are keen to learn. They give each other good support and happily share ideas. They have positive attitudes and want to do well.”
The inspector said pupils are ‘well-behaved’ and ‘enjoy coming to school’.
Ofsted said the school needs to improve teachers expectations of what pupils can achieve, ask more regular questions that challenge their thinking and give more problem solving activities to develop their maths skills in order to become outstanding.
A statement on the school's website said: “Needless to say, we are very pleased with the outcome as it testifies to the work completed since the previous inspection.
“Congratulations to the children and staff whose hard work is reflected in the pages of the report.
“Finally, thank you to those families who gave candid feedback to the inspection team.
“We are very happy with the outcome but equally mindful that school improvement is a continuous, on-going process.”
