West Craven High Technology College 'could do better'
Updated 1:34pm Friday 31st January 2014 in News
A SECONDARY school in Pendle has been rated as ‘good’ following a visit by education watchdog Ofsted.
Inspectors spent time at West Craven High Technology College, in Barnoldswick, assessing the quality of teaching and management.
Alan Parkinson, lead inspector, said: “In the large majority of lessons, teaching is good and some is outstanding. This is having a positive impact on students’ learning.
“Given their starting points, almost all students make good progress throughout the college, in a range of subjects including English and mathematics.”
But inspectors said the school could still make further improvements.
Mr Parkinson said: “A few lessons require improvement, particularly for marking and ensuring work set meets students’ needs. Not enough teaching is outstanding.
“College leaders and the governing body do not always check well enough the impact of their actions to ensure that students learn well, particularly those who join the college with lower literacy skills.”
