STAFF at a Bradford primary school have been praised for their "desire and drive to achieve the best for pupils."

Killinghall Primary School was described as a good and improving school after its latest visit from Ofsted inspectors.

They said the school has maintained the good quality of education it provides since its last inspection in 2013.

The inspection team also found that the school had made “considerable improvements” since their last visit.

In a letter to headteachers Gill Edge and Claire Spencer, inspectors say: “Together you have created a supportive climate in which teachers feel empowered and trusted to improve the school further. You work well as a team and you know your school extremely well.

"You and your staff show a genuine desire and drive to achieve the best for pupils and their families."

The school is also praised for working well with parents and the local community.

The report says school leaders have worked hard to engage with parents to improve attendance, and the school is also praised for its safeguarding.

Inspectors agreed with pupils and parents who praised the school for the level of care it provides and for keeping children safe.

Ofsted also praised the leadership of the school’s Early Years provision, the teaching of phonics and the broad range of subjects which are on offer to pupils.

Headteacher Gill Edge said: “We are very pleased with this report. It is clear that Ofsted see the school as we do. This success is down to the hard work of everyone across our school community.

“We are pleased that they recognised that we have delivered improvements since our last inspection and that we are focused on the right areas to keep the school moving forward.”
