A BRADFORD primary school where “leaders want pupils to be aspirational and believe they can achieve great things” has been judged as continuing to deliver a “good” education.

St Philip’s C of E Primary School in Girlington is part of the Bradford Diocesan Academies Trust.

The latest report followed a two-day inspection by Ofsted in June.

It highlights the positive learning environment in school and the exceptional behaviour of pupils. Inspectors stated: “Staff create an environment at St Philip’s CofE Primary School where pupils are polite and welcoming. Pupils enjoy coming to school and feel that it is a safe place to be.”

In addition, the report commended the hard work of leaders and teachers who have planned an “ambitious curriculum”.

“They have developed a clear sequence of learning that runs from Nursery to Year 6. They have identified the important knowledge that they want pupils to know. The curriculum is designed so that pupils’ knowledge builds over time.

“Leaders have ensured that the development of language, vocabulary and speaking skills is a high priority.”

Miss Hargreaves, head teacher at St Philip’s C of E Primary Academy, said: “We are thrilled for our pupils, staff and our whole school community. Everyone worked tirelessly to achieve this result and they can all feel incredibly proud of themselves.”
