School given seal of approval by Government inspectors


Broughton Moor Primary School is celebrating after Government inspectors praised the school's performance.

The school achieved the "good" rating in its last inspection in 2014 and inspectors noted the impact of headteacher Paul Brotherhood since his arrival in January last year after a period of instability at the school to maintain that rating.

Consistent approaches to teaching and learning were said to have been implemented and the school's caring and welcoming environment was noted.

Improvements have been made to the early years outdoor space and writing across the school after both were identified as needing work in the last inspection.

It was recommended that the school should now work on developing middle leaders to raise the quality of teaching and learning in their subjects.

More opportunities for the most-able pupils was also suggested, as well as improvements to the school website.

Mr Brotherhood said: "We're delighted with the outcome of the inspection and we feel that the

report has identified clearly the successes, as well as areas for development, for our school.

"We were a good school prior to this inspection and it's great to build upon the previous report and have our strengths praised.

"The children, staff and parents know this is a good school but it is always positive to hear it from someone else.

"Everyone in school knows their role and is very supportive of each other.

We have had a lot of successes over the past 12 months which have come through into the report.

"We know that the local community supports us and we're proud to support them."
