A PRIMARY school has been judged "good" by Ofsted for the fifth time in a row.

Inspectors have said that children at Keelham Primary School, on the outskirts of Thornton, are continuing to receive a good education, following a visit last month.

A letter to head Debra Butler said: "Overall, outcomes have been very strong over time.

"The proportion of children reaching a good level of development by the end of early years has been consistently above the national average."

“By the end of Key Stages One and Two, attainment at the expected standard has almost always been above the national average in reading, writing and mathematics.”

Mrs Butler said: “Pupils, parents, staff, Governors and the wider community have all played a part in enabling the school to continue to be a Good school and we are all very proud.”

Councillor Imran Khan, Bradford Council’s Executive Member for Education, Employment and Skills, said: "This is great news for Keelham Primary and another example of the good education being provided in our district. “It is a massive achievement to have five successive Good judgements and all those who have worked so hard which in turn has allowed the school to maintain this standard should be very proud.”
