Heasandford Primary School pupils and staff celebrate the school's good Ofsted report.

A Burnley primary school has been rated as good across the board by government inspectors.

Heasandford Primary School in Williams Road received the “good” rating from Ofsted following a recent visit.

Inspectors recognised that pupils’ attainment at the end of Key Stage 1 had improved year-on-year.

All pupils make at least good progress in reading, writing and maths the report added. The inspection also noted that the school has strong community links and a very effective team of mentors and staff who regularly liaise with families. This has improved attendance and helped parents to be more involved in learning activities.

Inspectors added: “Pupils’ behaviour is good. They enjoy coming to school and say that they always feel safe and value their friends.”

The school is not yet rated “outstanding” because not all learning ensures that all pupils get on with their work well and challenges them to the very best of their ability.

Headteacher Kendra Allen said: “We are thrilled with the result of the inspection as it recognises the continued hard work of our children, staff, parents and governors.

“The inspectors recognised the breadth and depth of the work that we do in school to support all our children and families.

“The key issues we have been given to concentrate on are aspects that we had already identified and fit in with the planned work for the future to improve our school even more.”
