A SCHOOL in Ilkley has improved to Good following a recent Ofsted inspection.

Ben Rhydding Primary School was praised by Ofsted for providing a broad curriculum which prepares pupils for the move to high school.

“Pupils enjoy reading and this has had a positive impact on the quality of pupils’ writing.

“The school’s curriculum provides a broad and balanced range of subjects.

“Disadvantaged children and those with special educational needs or disabilities make good progress.

“Pupils’ behaviour is good and they had a positive attitude to learning.”

To become Outstanding, the school was told to improve the quality of teaching further, particularly in mathematics.
