Inkpen Primary School has kept hold of its ‘good’ rating after the quality of education was praised by Ofsted inspectors.
This was the first inspection at the Weavers Lane school since 2012, and saw particular glowing reports for different areas of teaching.
It was found that teachers set appropriately challenging targets for pupils, children got on well together and that they felt safe at school.
There was also a noticeable improvement in the teaching of writing, which had been highlighted as an area to be worked on at the previous inspection.
However some further areas to improve on have been identified, including tracking pupils’ learning and increasing the proportion of pupils that excel in maths and writing.
Headteacher Jane Kanisius said: “We are delighted to receive our latest ‘good’ rating from Ofsted.
“I am extremely proud of the school, its teachers and its pupils who have all worked extremely hard to maintain this rating.
“We will all continue to ensure that pupils receive a high level of education and that Inkpen Primary School is a happy place to be.”
Lynne Doherty, West Berkshire Council’s executive member for education, added: “This is a fantastic achievement by people who care deeply for the school and its pupils.
“Everyone at the school has worked extremely hard to maintain and improve this standard and make this school a great learning space where pupils and staff can thrive and achieve.”
