AN inner city primary school has been described as outstanding just two years after it was told to improve by inspectors.

Dixons Music Primary in Bradford was given the top judgement in every category in a recently released Ofsted inspection.

It marks a quick turn around for the school – in July 2014 inspectors said it required improvement in its first inspection since it opened in 2012.

The academy, on Trinity Road off Great Horton Road, currently has 210 Reception to Year 3 students, and will grow to its full capacity of 420 in 2018.

Dixons Music Primary is on the same site as secondary school Dixons Trinity Academy, which was judged outstanding in 2014.

The two outstanding schools will now be used as a template for the academy chain’s next project, an all-through school opening in Harehills, Leeds, next September.

The report says: “The principal’s clear vision for the school, and unrelenting drive to realise it, have resulted in considerable improvements since the previous inspection.

“This is a school where staff are absolutely committed to continuous improvement.

“Pupils in all year groups make outstanding progress and, overall, their attainment is above average.

“Pupils achieve well in music. Pupils’ behaviour is exemplary: they are courteous and polite.”

Principal Michelle Long said: “We are thrilled to have achieved one of our goals – to be judged outstanding in all areas.

“Our aim now is to secure the very best outcomes for our students so that they succeed at university, thrive in a top job and have a great life.”

She added: “To be graded outstanding is a remarkable achievement and a wonderful reward for the hard work and unrelenting commitment of our staff and students.”

Luke Sparkes, executive principal of Dixons Trinity and Dixons Music Primary, said: “The school is an innovative and hard-working school which has attracted national attention.

“I am delighted that the achievements of the school have finally been formally recognised.

“It also bodes well for Dixons Trinity Harehills.”

Sir Nick Weller, chief executive officer of Dixons Academies, said: “Michelle has done an exceptional job, staff are highly committed; students are happy and successful in a great school.”
